Chilly Garlic Rasam

Tired of the regular rasams ,want to try something different that can spice up your taste buds and make you gorge a little extra – well here’s a nice spicy throat warming rasam from the southie kitchen

Add green chillies -6, garlic -10 pods and one onion fully sliced to the one and a half cups of dal before cooking, Once its cooked mash it well.

Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a pan, add a sprinkle of jeera,pepper seeds,ginger powder and curry leaves, once it splutters, add one diced tomato, once that is half fried,add half a tbsp of rasam powder, 1 tsp of turmeric powder and then pour in the mashed dal, add some water, salt, a small piece of jaggery and allow it to boil. Garnish with coriander, serve it hot with rice!!!!

hmm… if too spicy, keep some water to drink and a sweet to eat after!!! :)

Enjoy!
