Lemon Rasam

This is one of my favorite ways of preparing rasam, specially during the night when I am are tired and absolutely need a hearty meal.

  • 1 Ripe Tomato
  • 1 inch piece of ginger(chopped)
  • 2 Green chillies(slit vertically)
  • 1 sprig curry leaves
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 Tbsp rasam powder
  • 1 pinch Turmeric powder
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • Asafoetida
  • salt to taste
Heat oil in a kadai, add the mustard seeds and let it pop.
Add curry leaves, green chillies and ginger and saute.
(The ginger added gives a very distinct aroma and a fresh flavor to the rasam.)
Add chopped tomato, turmeric powder, rasam powder and saute.
Add water and salt as required.
Just before it come to a boil , add asafoetida.
Turn off the heat and add lemon juice.(adding the lemon juice earlier will cause a bitter taste.)
Serve with white rice,or as a soup.
