Being a pineapple lover, I wonder how I missed making this rasam all these days. I took the recipe from Chithra Viswanathan's page. It was very delicious. Here is the recipe..
Finely chopped pineapple-1/2 cup
Cooked thur dal-2 tbsp
Rasam powder-1.5-2 tsp(depending on how spicy your powder is)
Curry leaves-a few
Coriander leaves-for garnishing
Lime juice- from 1 or 2 limes(depending on sourness)
Mustard seeds-1/2 tsp
To decorate-extra pineapple pieces
Cook together tomatoes, pineapple pieces, a few coriander leaves, curry leaves with 1/2 cup water till they turn soft(6-7 min) and blend the mixture using a hand blender to a smooth paste.
To this add green chilli, rasam powder, salt, hing and cooked dal mixed with 3 cups of water.
Boil the mixture on medium heat till the raw smell of rasam powder goes off(15 min).
Switch off the gas, tamper and add lime juice.
Top with finely chopped coriander leaves & pineapple pieces.
