A fantastic recipe I tried today.

Instant Rasam Mix:


4 Tbsp toordal
1 tsp coriander seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 - 1/2 tsp peppercorns
1 dried red chillies
Tamarind- 1 big nellikkai sized
Salt-1 tbsp(or more or less to taste)

For tadka:
1 Tbsp gingelli oil, 1 tsp mustard seeds, 1 tsp cumin seeds, a pinch of asafoetida powder,1/8 tsp turmeric powder and few curry leaves chopped

1. Dry roast toordal in a pan until it starts to change the color.
Now add coriander seeds, cumin seeds, peppercorns, chillies and roast until the coriander seeds start to change color n becomes flavourful.
Add tamarind to it and turn off the stove. Let cool.
2. Grind the toasted ingredients along with salt into a fine powder.
3. Heat the oil in a small pan and add the tadka ingredients. When the mustard seeds start to pop, turn off the stove. Cool and add it to the ground mixture. Store in an airtight jar.

How to use:

For 150ml(or abt 200ml if u want the rasam to be thin) of water use about a Tbsp of mix and let boil for about 2 minutes.
Mashed tomato,crushed garlic and minced cilantro can be added to further enhance the flavor of rasam.(I din't use any but still the rasam was really tasty)
