Pineapple Rasam Thai Style

Ingredients to make Pineapple Rasam Thai Style

  • 1 and 1/2 cup pineapple purée fresh or canned
  • 1/2 cup tomato purée fresh
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup boiled mashed yellow moong dal
  • 2-3 coriander stems washed and cleaned
  • 1 cup lemongrass leaves ( you need it for flavouring then it has to be discarded )
  • 1 lemongrass stalk
  • 1/2 inch ginger piece
  • 2 red Thai chillies or green (optional)
  • 12 tsp green lime zest or kaffir lime leaves if available (i used the zest)
  • Few Sprigs of curry leaves
  • 12 tsp turmeric for colour effect
  • 1 tsp roasted and crushed cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp fresh crushed black pepper
  • salt as per taste
  • A pinch of sugar (skip if using canned pineapple )
  • 12 tsp oil for sautéing and tempering
  • A pinch of asafoetida
  • A small cup of finely chopped pineapple for garnishing
  • A tablespoon of finely chopped coriander for garnishing
  • Few lemongrass leaves for garnishing

How to make Pineapple Rasam Thai Style

  1. Bring to boil a large pot of water as per the quantity required.
  2. Once the water starts boiling, add in the pineapple and tomato purée and bring it to a boil. Add in the coriander stem and lemongrass leaves.
  3. Add in the turmeric, salt, sugar, black pepper, cumin seed powder. Then add in the yellow boiled moong dal and bring it to a boil.
  4. Grind together the ginger, red chillies, lemongrass stalk (the white soft part), a piece of coriander stem, lemon zest or kaffir lime leaves into a fine smooth paste. Adjust the spice level as per taste. The Red Thai curry paste is ready.
  5. For tempering, take oil in a pan, add in the asafoetida, curry leaves, a tsp of the ground red curry paste and sauté it well. Add this tempering into the boiling soup.
  6. Next slowly add in the coconut milk. Keep stirring it. Now make sure to discard the coriander stem and lemongrass leaves.
  7. Garnish with chopped coriander, lemongrass, freshly torn kaffir leaves and the chopped pineapple pieces for the tangy crunch in the soup.
  8. Serve hot with warm Jasmine Rice or just plain with rice noodles. (I preferred it just plain as soup accompanied by sautéed Thai flavours infused warm sprouts salad with veggies.)

My Tip:

I would scale the spice level of this recipe at 3 on a scale of 1 to 5 wherein 1 being the least spicy and 5 being the spiciest! Since it's a fusion of Indian and Thai flavours I have avoided the use of veggies as I wanted to serve this as a mid evening side dish before dinner. Try not to make the soup very thick as it wouldn't taste great. Keep it in a little liquid form to enjoy the fusion Rasam and Chawal. Adjust the taste as per your preference.
