Lemon Rasam - JFI -Lemon Ingredient


This is one of the easiest thing ...I call this as comfort food at my place. If I am tired, not in a mood to cook I prepare lemon rasam. It’s very simple and taste awesome ...Here it goes...
Raw Materials Required

Turvar dhal -1 cup
Tomato -1(chopped)
Green chilli -3 (slit in the middle)
Ginger -2 ttsp
Lemon -3 nos (get the juice from the fresh lemon)
Mustart Seeds -1/2 tsp
Haldi -1/3 tsp
Coriender Leaves few
Rasam Powder -1/3 tsp (i use home made)
Salt as per taste

Preparation Style
Wash the dhal and transfer it in a small bowl. In the same bowl add tomato, green chilies, ginger and pressure cook them. Once they are pressure cooked allow them to cool. In a kadai add oil and mustard seeds .Allow them to crack and then add the cooked dhal to it .Add haldi, rasam powder and salt and allow it to come to a boil. Off the gas add coriander leaves and allow the rasam to cool for 10-15 mts.Then add fresh lemon juice and serve it with rice..
Yummy yummy rasam ready!!!!

This would be my entry for Jihva for Ingredients, started by Indira of Mahanandi hosted by Coffee Spice Cafe -JFI "Lime/Lemon" for this month.


Enjoy!!!
