Energy Rasam - Moong Dal Rasam

Print Friendly and PDF
Yum
I took this recipe from Aval Vikatan magazine under “Paati vaithiyam” section.We (Me & My MIL )call this rasam as ‘Energy Rasam’ .We have this rasam whenever we suffer from fever,cold,mouth and stomach ulcers.U can also have this rasam after recovering from jeopardizing diseases like small pox,chikunguniyaa,typhoid etc.This regains the lost strength to our body..It helps to improve the loss of appetite .The moong dal used here has got the tendency to cure stomach and mouth ulcers and the ginger induces hunger..Jeera/Cumin seeds is good for digestion..Overall it makes our body to work efficientlyThumbs-up

Very easy to prepare and tastes like Ven Pongal (Kaara pongal) when  mixed with plain rice and ghee..

Ingredients
  • Moong dal – 1/2 cup
  • Tomato  - 2 nos
  • Ginger – 1 inch size (finely chopped)
  • Jeera / Cumin seeds – 1 –2 tsp
  • Lemon – Half
  • Pepper Powder– 1 tsp (optional)
  • Salt and water - Required
To temper
  • Mustard seeds – 1/4 tsp
  • Jeera – 1/2 tsp
  • Asafetida/Hing – 1/4 tsp
  • Curry leaves – a sprig
  • Ghee – 1 tsp
Coriander leaves – to garnish
Method:
  • Heat a kadai and dry roast 2 tsp of jeera and grind it to a fine powder.
  • Pressure cook moong dal along with finely chopped ginger,tomatoes and salt for 1-2 whistles and mash it with a ladle.Add the jeera powder.
  • Now heat a kadai with 1 tsp of ghee and season with mustard and cumin seeds.Add 1/4 tsp of hing,curry leaves.
  • Add this seasoning to the dal mixture and let it boil for sometime.
  • Remove from fire and add the lemon juice(fire off!!).
  • Mix it well and garnish with coriander leaves.

NOTE:If u want it to have spicy,u can add black pepper powder ..But we don’t need it ...I dint have coriander leaves to garnish..
