Recipe Notes

Notes

  • Tempering with toor dal incorporates a unique taste to the rasam,so don’t avoid it.
  • You can a add a teaspoon of sambhar powder to the tamarind extract,but in order to give a unique tamarindy flavour I didn’t do it.
  • Adjust the chillies as per your taste.
  • Tempering with ghee will also give a nice flavour.
  • This can be prepared without tomatoes too,but I didn’t want the rasam plain,so added to bring an extra taste.
