Pepper Rasam

Hi..I already posted how to make simple quick rasam here, this is my fav version..








Ingredients
Tamarind paste-1 Full tsp
Water-1+half cup
(I checked with MTR brand,u add more at the end,if it tastes more tangy)
Turmeric powder-half tsp
Salt-Quarter tsp
Coriander leaves-Quarter cup
(Cut the coriander bunch with stem part)
Asafoetida-two pinch

To Grind
Pepper-1 tsp
Cumin-1/2 tsp
Garlic-2-3 cloves

To Season
Mustard Seeds-1 tsp
Red Chillies-2 nos(stems removed n unbroken)
Cumin-half tsp
Tomoto-1 (chopped)
Oil-1 tsp




Method
1.In a pan,Fry mustard seeds,cumin and Tomato in oil
(Tomato need not to fry completely)
2.Mix tamarind paste and water..If u taste it,it should be mildly tangy,if not add little water.
3.Pour the tamarind water to pan,add rest of the ingredients soon
4.Allow to boil ,when rasam bubbles on top,switch off the flame
Coriander stems gives good flavour to rasam..Try it
5.Grind cumin,pepper and garlic coarsely,add it to rasam when its boiling
6.Can also grind with green chillies or one tomato

U can also make balls of cumin-pepper-garlic paste on air tight container and store it in fridge

This rasam will be healing food for flu patients
