Pepper Rasam/ Kali mirch Rasam

Hello All,
     Winters are welcome and  welcome the cold and sore throat problems too... I face this problem quiet often so decided to have Pepper Rasam on regular basis to get rid of both the problems. 

Ingredients:
2 Tomatoes 
1 tbsp black peppercorns (roughly mashed)
1 tsp cumin seeds (roughly mashed)
3-4 cloves of garlic (roughly mashed)
1 tbsp rasam powder
1/4 tsp garam masala
A pinch of haldi powder
Few Curry leaves
Salt acc. to taste

1 tbsp roughly chopped coriander leaves
1 juice of lemon (instead of tamarind)

To Temper:

1 tbsp Ghee
1 tsp mustard seeds
Few curry leaves
A pinch of Hing
2 Red chillies (roughly broken)
         
Method:
  • Add chopped tomatoes, rasam powder, turmeric powder, crushed peppercorns, cumin seeds, garlic and salt in a heavy bottomed pan. Cook tomatoes till they become mashy and pulpy.
  • Add 2 cups of water and bring it to boil. Once it starts boiling simmer on low flame.
  • In the meanwhile heat ghee in a tadka pan, add mustard seeds, when it splutters, add red chilly powder, hing ,curry leaves mix well. Pour it over the rasam.
  • Garnish with chopped fresh coriander and sprinkle lemon juice on the top. 
  • Serve it hot with boiled rice.....Enjoy.
