Do you, at times, find it difficult to manage cooking after working long hours, and looking for quick and easy recipes that are filling and fun? If your answer to that question is yes, you're in the right place. Today we are going to share a very simple South Indian rasam recipe that goes well with rice. While rasam recipe is nothing new, many people add rasam powder or make DIY rasam powder to prepare a meal. But what if we tell you that this approach does not require you to make one.
Not just simple foods, rasam rice makes for an easy, low-carb meal.
Here is a simple recipe that we tried and tested. All you need are five basic ingredients found in almost every Indian kitchen.
1 - Tomatoes, chopped almost
1/4 cup - Toal dal, pressure cooked
1 Sugar ball - Imli, soaked in warm water for 15 minutes
1 1 / 4tsp - Sambar powder
1tsp - Rock salt / salt
Take the kadhai and add the imli water to a medium flame. After that add the chopped tomatoes, cooked pressure, dorlic dough, sambar powder and rock salt. Let them boil for 15 minutes.
Why does the recipe work?
While sambar powder is the perfect combination of all spices, imli or tamarind adds its subtle flavor that is a hallmark of standard South American rum. Both of these substances blend well with the tomato sugar and make a nice flavorful combination.
Pro Tip: Press cook one toor dal with rice over one in the same cooker to save extra time with gas.
