Tamarind Rasam

ಮೊಳಗ ರಸಂ

This is a very simple and easy recipe. I used to have it almost daily at lunch and dinner for about 3 months at a stretch. :) You are wondering why.. that was during my confinement period. I almost got addicted to it and it took a while for me get out of the habit of eating this molaga rasam / ಪುಲ್ಚರ್ :) It is very tasty and healthy..

Tamarind - lemon size Soaked in water
Rasam Powder - 1/2 tea spn
Curry Leaves - 3 - 4 nos.
Coriander Leaves - 1-2 strands
Ghee - 1 tea spn
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tea spn
Jeera - 1/4 tea spn
Hing - a pinch
Salt to taste.
Jaggery - 1/2 teaspn

1) Squeeze out the Juice from the soaked tamarind.
2) Add rasam powder, curry leaves and coriander leaves, jaggery and salt and bring it to a boil.

For tempering
1) In a small pan, add ghee and once hot, add mustard seeds and jeera. Once they splutter add hing and pour it on the boiled rasam.

Serve hot with rice and some papadams.. :)
