AMLA RASAM / USIRIKAYA RASAM / NELLIKAI RASAM


Amla is a great source of Vitamin C. I am trying out many dishes with them as it is the amla season now. This is a simple rasam recipe made with amlas. I have added a little toor dal also as hubby dear does not like anything very sour. You may skip it if you want. Rasam helps in digestion also.


Ingredients:
Amlas ........... 3
Toor dal ........ 2 tbsps
Tomato ......... 1 small
Lemon juice .... 1 tbsp (or use little tamarind)
Ginger ............ 1/4 inch piece
Garlic ... 2 cloves
Urad dal ...........  2 tsps
Cumin seeds ..... 1/2 tsp
Peppercorns ....... few
Dry red chilli ....1
Rasam powder .. 1 tsp
Salt ..................... to taste
Jaggery ........... 1 tsp
Turmeric powder .. 1/4 tsp
Mustard seeds ... 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves ... few
Asafoetida.. 1 pinch
Oil ......................... 2 tbsps

Method:

Soak the toor dal. Pressure cook it with 1 tomato.









In a pan add 1 tsp of oil and roast the urad dal, cumin seeds, pepper corns and red chilli.








Grind it to make powder.









Wash and cut the amlas and ginger.









Grind them along with the powder adding little water.










Remove the paste in a bowl.









Heat the remaining oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds, curry leaves and crushed garlic.








When they cracke add the ground amla paste and saute.









Add salt, turmeric powder and rasam powder.










Stir in the boiled and blended dal cooked with tomato.









Add sufficient quantity of water and boil. Add the jaggery and lemon juice. Finally add some coriander leaves.
