Butternut Squash Rasam

Rasam, real comforting food, recently i bought butternut squashs from my farmer's market..after trying out few bakes with home made butternut squash puree, there were some leftover puree sitting in my fridge instead of making out gravies or sweets with this left over puree i tried out some hot rasam, for my surprise this rasam tastes marvellous, colourful with bright orange colour with mild sweet anf spicy taste...We just loved this delicious rasam with papads...As usual, i used home made rasam powder, slit opened greenchillies, lemon juice and a tomato with some crushed garlic cloves..Simple, easy and delicious rasam ready within few minutes...



2cups Butternut squash puree
1cup Water
1no Tomato (crushed)
1tsp Homemade Rasam Powder
1tsp Lemon juice
4nos Garlic cloves
1no Slit opened green chilly
1/2tsp Mustard seeds + urad dal
1/4tsp Cumin seeds
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
2nos Dry red chillies
5nos Curry leaves




Take the butternut squash puree, crushed garlic cloves, crushed tomatoes, home made rasam powder,curry leaves, water with enough salt together in a bowl ....heat enough oil and add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, dry red chillies,slit opened green chillies and asafoetida powder and let them fry...now add the butternut puree-spice water..once they starts bubbling put off the stove, finally add the lemon juice and give a stir...

Serve hot with rice and any spicy side dishes!
