Pineapple Rasam-Pineapple Rasam recipe-How to make Pineapple rasam

Rasam is one of the most comforting food for me apart from dal. Pineapple rasam has a different taste and is worth trying. The procedure is similar to my lemon rasam except that I add pineapple bits and pineapple juice instead of lemon juice. If you have not tried pineapple rasam, then you can definitely give it a try. Today we will learn how to make pineapple rasam following this easy recipe.

Pineapple Rasam Recipe
Method

Take 3/4 cup of water, add chopped tomatoes, turmeric powder, rasam powder, salt needed, slitted green chilli, pineapple pieces, curry leaves and hing.

Boil for a few minutes on low flame until the raw smell of the rasam powder goes.

Then add cooked dal, pineapple juice and 3/4-1 cup of water. When you see froth forming on the top, remove it from flame. Do not boil the rasam as it will not taste good.

Now heat a tsp of ghee, add mustard seeds, jeera seeds,when it sizzles, pour it over the rasam.

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with rice and potato curry or any fried curry. We had it with Kovakkai fry and it was simply divine.

Note - you can soak tur dal for 15 minutes in hot water, so that it will get cook well, moreover it saves a lot of time and fuel.

If you do not have rasam powder, you can use sambar powder also.
