Milagu Jeeragam rasam


Lemon sized tamarind soaked in water
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp asafoetida
1 tsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
Few curry leaves

Masala ingredients

1 tsp coriander seeds
2 tsp red gram dal (thur)
1 tsp black pepper
3 red chillies
1 tsp cumin seeds

Dry roast the masala ingredients except cumin seeds. Cool and grind to coarse powder. This can be stored in an air-tight container for future use.

Add salt, asafoetida and 2 tsp masala powder to the tamarind extract. Add 2 cups of water and allow it to boil well. Temper with mustard seeds and curry leaves.

Can be served with rice or had as it is as a soup.

A quick recipe that is very beneficial to health during illness because of the medicinal properties of cumin seeds and pepper. Sending it over to Trupti for the Comfort food for illness event.
