Garlic Rasam

Garlic Rasam is a healthy rasam and can be also had as a soup.When i was not feeling wellSmiley face because of the climate here i terribly wanted a rasam but not the usual paruppu rasam.So when i was searching for poondu rasam i found this recipe here and with no delay prepared it and tasted heavenly.So thought of sharing the recipe of garlic rasam.

Ingredients :

Tomato 1 no(big sized)
Tamarind pulp 1 3/4 tsp
Garlic 8 pods
Coriander leaves(finely chopped)1 tbsp

Peppercorns 1/2 tsp
Coriander seeds 1/2+1/8 tsp
Red chillie 1-2 nos

Seasoning :

Ghee 2 tsp
Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves Few

Method :

 1. Chop the tomato and in a vessel saute it till they turn mushy.

2. Now add tamarind pulp,turmeric powder,salt,coriander leaves and around 2.5 cups of water and allow it to boil well.
3. Grind the items given in the powder column coarsely,crush the garlic using pestle and mortar and set aside.Once the tomato boils nicely add the crossly ground powder,3/4 th of crushed garlic and wait till foam starts forming on the top.
4. Now in the ghee do the seasoning of mustard seeds,curry leaves and 1/4th of reserved garlic and add to the rasam and close with the lid.Serve with hot rice and appalam.
