Amla & Dal Rasam/Indian Gooseberry Dal Soup

Rasam, my readers will definitely know my love for Indian style clear soup aka rasam. At mom's place, she used to prepare rasam daily for our lunch and she usually grind her homemade rasam powder in huge quantity. But at Mil's place, rasam dont have its place in daily cooking,obviously my husband dont give much preference to this Indian soup. Needless to say how i struggled before to feed him with my favourite rasam, thank god my H quickly started loving rasam and i can proudly says that we are rasam family now.

Today's post is with Indian gooseberry dal rasam, gooseberries have many health values and we get abundantly in India, but unfortunately if you live in abroad  you will definitely miss this healthy berries.We get rarely this berries here, sometimes i dont even pick them as they wont be that much fresh. This time when i went to Indian stores,i couldnt keep myself away after seeing some super fresh gooseberries, back home i prepared two beautiful dishes with it and one is this Indian style soup. If you get gooseberries,dont forget to make this fantastic rasam.Sending to my event CWS-Dals and Healthy Diet-Go green guest hosted by Amurta.



3nos Gooseberries (pressure cooked)
1/4cup Toordal (cooked)
1tsp Rasam powder
1no Tomato (crushed)
Few curry leaves
2nos Garlic cloves (crushed)
1tsp Lemon juice
1tsp Ghee
Few coriander leaves
3nos Dry red chillies
1no Cinnamon stick
2nos Cloves
Salt

Remove the seeds from the cooked gooseberries and grind a thick puree.

Now take this puree,crushed tomato,cooked toordal,curry leaves, crushed garlic cloves, coriander leaves,salt and rasam powder  in a bowl.

Add enough water to make it thin.

Heat the ghee, add the cinnamon stick,cloves and dry red chillies, fry until they turns brown.

Add immediately the already prepared gooseberry-dal mixture to the tempered spices, once the rasam starts bubbling put off the stove.

Add the lemon juice and give a stir, serve with rice.
