How to make Kalyana Rasam

  1. Soak the tamarind in hot water & extract the juice.
  2. In a pan add ghee and grinding ingredients. Fry it till the dal turns golden brown colour.keep it aside.
  3. Grind it along with 1 tomato + Jeera to a coarse paste.
  4. In a vessel, add the tamarind juice, salt, turmeric powder, slit green chillies and 1 chopped tomato.
  5. Boil it till the raw smell of tamarind goes away, add the ground masala. Mix it for a minute.
  6. Add the required water mixed with cooked toor dal to the mixture.
  7. Boil till it becomes frothy from all the sides, add curry leaves, coriander leaves and turn off the flame.
  8. Finally temper with the items given under 'to temper' and add it to the Rasam.

My Tip:

Don't boil the Rasam once it starts to frothy. Otherwise the taste will be different. For best taste use ghee for roasting & tempering.
