Mint Rasam/Pudina Rasam

Print Friendly and PDF
This rasam is quite different from the regular tomato or dal rasam as it is loaded with full of flavors infused by mint in it and is a perfect combination with rice and some papad.You can even savor this as a soup if you dilute it with water bit more and is perfect for rainy season.

Ingredients:


1 small bunch of mint(approx 1 cup)
2 tbsp grated dry coconut
4-5 dry red chillies

3 tbsp tamarind pulp
1 tsp grated Jaggery(optional)

a pinch of turmeric
4-5 curry leaves

1 tsp mustard seeds

a pinch of hing

salt to taste
1 tbsp oil

1/2 tsp ghee


Method:
  • Grind grated dry coconut,red chillies and salt to a fine powder.Add mint leaves and grind again with little water to form a coarse paste.
  • Heat oil in a kadai and add the ground paste and fry until the raw smell goes away.
  • Add tamarind pulp,jaggery,turmeric and 1 and 1/2 cups of water and let it boil.Now check the taste of it and adjust accordingly adding salt,water if required.
  • Heat ghee in a small tadka pan and crackle mustard seeds,add curry leaves and hing and fry and add this tadka to the boiling rasam and remove it from heat.

Serve it hot with rice,some fry and papad.
