Tangy Potato Rasam

If u want to give a twist to ur usual rasam, do try out this delicious rasam with potatoes, actually i tried out this rasam accidentally while cooking the toor dal and potatoes in pressure cooker eventhough i kept them for pressure cooking separately,yeah dunno how two potato pieces got cooked along with toor dal which was completely mushy also got overcooked with toor dal, finally instead of throwing them i tried making this potato rasam,just by mashing that over cooked mushy potatoes along with cooked toor dal,this rasam tastes too delicious with a different taste, we enjoyed having them with some papads..Sending to Priya's Veggie for a month -Potato hosted by Divya..

Potato Rasam

1no Potato (cooked & mashed)
2tbsp Cooked toor dal
1no Tomato (crushed)
1no Crushed garlic
1tbsp Rasam powder
1/4tsp Tamarind paste
3nos Curry leaves
1/2tsp Mustard seeds+cumin seeds
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
2nos Dry red chillies
2tsbp Chopped coriander leaves
Few curry leaves
Salt
Oil

Take the mashed potato, the cooked dal along with water,tamarind paste,curry leaves, rasam powder, salt,crushed garlic,crushed tomato,curry leaves in a bowl...heat a tsp of oil,add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, asafoetida powder and red chillies,fry until brown..Add the veggies-dal water immediately, let them boil..put of the stove once they starts boiling add the chopped coriander leaves..

Enjoy hot with rice and any side dish..
