Eggplant Moongdal Rasam

I know most of us will be very much surprised to read the name of this recipe, yep i prepared this delicious rasam with cooked smashed eggplant puree and moongdal..Usually i prepare rasam atleast twice a week  with tomatoes, but yesterday i prepared some smashed eggplant puree by broiling the eggplants through oven which i thought of making some baingan bharta,finally i was saying myself y dont i give a trial to make rasam with those smashed eggplant puree, immediately i pressure cooked some moongdal and prepared this delicious slightly thick rasam with usual rasam powder, spices and tomatoes..This rasam tastes too marvellous when served hot with papads or with spicy potato fry..We guys loved it..Sending this rasam to CMT-Dal/Kadhi/Rasam/Sambar guest hosted by Priya, event by Jagruti..
