Pineapple Rasam

Pineapple Rasam

Pineapple rasam is quick and easy to make. It is tangy, sweet and flavorful. Usually at home we make the quicker version without dal. I got this recipe from vanitha magazine. Try this,you will surely love it.

Chopped pineapple- 1 cup
Cooked dal (mung dal)- 1/2 cup
Tomato- 1
( or one tbs tamarind pulp)
Shallot- 2
 Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Sugar- 1/2 tsp
salt to taste

2)To roast and make a paste
Dry green chilly- 3-4
Cumin seeds- 1/2 tsp
Fenugreek seeds- 1/3 tsp
Urad dal- 1/2 tsp
Kadala parippu- 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida/Kayam- a pinch

3)To temper
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds- 1/3 tsp
Dry red chilly- 1
Garlic- 3 pods crushed
Curry leaves- a few
Chopped coriander leaves- a little
Oil - 2 tsp

 Cook dal/parippu till it is soft and mushy. Into the same pot add the chopped pineapple, chopped shallots,turmeric powder, sugar and salt. Add one cup of water and cook till soft. Add chopped tomatoes and cook for two to three minutes.
In a pan add one tsp of oil and roast all the ingredients listed under number (2) ingredients till golden brown. Make a fine paste of this and all to the cooked pineapple. Mix and add enough water to adjust consistency. Bring this to a boil and switch off the flame.
To temper heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and cumin seeds, when they splutter add dry red chilly, crushed garlic and curry leaves. Roast for a minute and pour over the rasam and mix. Sprinkle chopped coriander leaves and cover with a lid till it is ready to be served.
