Amma's Tomato Dhal Rasam
This is my Amma's recipe. It's all time our family favourite. It's very good to eat it for flu. We love it as it's very tasty to eat it with dhal and tomato juices.
Tamarind = key lemon size
Toovar Dhal = 1/2 cup
Ripe Tomatos = 3 big or 4 small
Crush & pounded ingredients:
Garlic = 3 to 4 cloves
Dry Red chilli = 1 piece
Black Pepper = 1 tsp
Cumin seeds = 1 tsp
Sambar Onion = 3 to 4 pieces
Coriander leaves = few
salt as needed
For tempering:
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp Feenugreek seeds
1 red chilly
a pinch of hing
few curry leaves
For Cooking:
Pressure cook dhal with a pinch of tumeric and oil till soft.
Make tomato juice in a blender.
In a pan, add tomato, tamarind, pounded ingredients, salt and enough water. Simmer and cover to cook till small bubbles appear on top. Add cooked and mashed dhal from the Pressure cooker. Let it boil for few minutes.
Do the seasonings and add it to the rasam before turning off the fire.
Serve it piping hot with white rice, chips or papad and egg dry curry as a side dish
