Pineapple Rasam


Another version of rasam. I follow the same procedure as i do it for lemon rasam, just simple additions to it. I prepare it almost once a week at home as it is very simple and easy. Its very simple and taste awesome ...Here it goes .

Raw Materials

Turvar dhal -1 cup
Tomato -1 (cut into small pieces)
Green chilli -3 (slit in the middle)
Ginger -2 ttsp
Pineapple Chunks -1 small tin
Mustart Seeds -1/2 tsp
Haldi -1/3 tsp
Coriander Leaves
Rasam Powder -1/3 tsp
Salt as per taste

Preparation Style

Wash the dhal and transfer it in a small bowl.In the same bowl add tomato, green chillies,ginger,pineapple chunks(the whole small tin) 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.Serve it with hot rice. It taste awesome. As the pineapple gets cooked along with the dhal the flavor of the pineapple mixes well with the dhal and taste awesome ..Simple one ..Enjoy!!!
