Rasam is the most favourite and best part in south indian meal….

Here is the recipe

Turmeric powder -half tsp

Salt – Quarter tsp

Coriander leaves – Quarter cup

(Cut the coriander bunch with stem part)

Asafoetida – two pinch

To Season

Mustard Seeds -1 tsp

Red Chillies -2 nos (stems removed n unbroken)

(I ignore chillies, since i feed my daug)

Cumin – half tsp

Tomoto – 1 (chopped)

Oil -1 tsp


  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
