This is a basic, beginner recipe. No frills, no fancy, just a simple dal. Only, you don’t need 2 pots – one to cook the dal in, one to add the seasonings. It’s all one pot, turn it on, set the timer and forget it. When done, add tempering, and salt. Total comfort food, ready in about 25 mins (including pressure release time).
One of the easiest, healthiest and tastiest rasams. Very little oil/fat, plenty of protein (toor dal) and loaded with vitamin c in the form of cilantro, green chilies, and lime/lemon juice, and packed with the healing digestive ginger. That’s the recipe in a nutshell!
This is a very simple, quick, and forgiving soup. Very satisfying with complex flavors from the ingredients, and filling. Perfect with a crusty, porous, spongy bread, on a cold and rainy day.
Today’s recipe is made out of the grains that are fed to horses, ergo horse gram. Yep! Instead of the toor dal that is traditionally used in rasam, this recipe bases its protein content on horse gram. Horse gram is supposed to have some magical properties such as helping in weight loss. I don’t know if that’s a confirmed fact or not, but on cold rainy or winter days, it’s a good hearty soup/rasam to have piping hot with some steamed rice.
