Ginger and Lime Rasam

Ingredients to make Ginger and Lime Rasam

  • 1/3 cup split pigeon peas/ toor/tuvar dal
  • 2 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tsp peppercorns
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 green chili
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp asafetida powder/hing
  • 3 cups water
  • salt to taste
  • Juice of 2 limes (medium size if large use 1 only)

How to make Ginger and Lime Rasam

  1. Wash the dal well and add it to the pressure cooker with 3 cups of water.
  2. Assemble the ginger, pepper, cumin, chili, turmeric and asafoetida and grind to a fine paste in a mixer grinder or a blender (if you have mortar and pestle you can use that too).
  3. Add the ground paste to the dal and pressure cook for 4-5 whistles on medium flame or until done.
  4. Turn off the heat and wait for the pressure to release.
  5. Once the pressure is released mix well with a whisk and add salt and boil for 2 minutes.
  6. Now turn off the stove/flame and put in the lime juice and serve hot with rice or serve it as a soup.

My Tip:

I have added only 3 cups of water because I wanted a little thick rasam for making it thinner use 4 cups of water.
