What is Rasam?

Rasam is a staple dish in South Indian homes. South Indian meals will never be complete without Rasam. It is a light and tangy soup served piping hot, either on its own or with rice.

We generally make several types of rasam like pepper rasam, lemon rasam, paruppu rasam, etc. Each rasam is unique and different in its own way. The best part of consuming rasam every day is, that it helps in digestion, builds immunity, and helps in fighting infections. Since rasam aids digestion, so usually it is served at the end of the meal in South India.

Some rasam recipes –

Raw Mango Mint Rasam!

It is also called as Mangai Rasam / Mago Charu. As the summer is here and also the mango season, so I often make this rasam with raw mango / unripe mango. This rasam is tangy, spicy as well as flavorful.

It is a twist to the traditional rasam recipe and perfect for the summer season.

What are the steps to make this Raw Mango Mint Rasam?

Well, here I have used arhar(toor) dal and tomato along with raw mangoes.

So first wash the mangoes and make slits in them using a knife. Then boil the mangoes in 3 cups of water in a pan until softened. Turn off the heat and let the mangoes cool. Gently take out the skin and mash the mangoes using your hands. Keep aside.

Now boil arhar(toor) dal along with tomatoes, ginger, and garlic. Strain this into a pan and also add the mango puree, rasam powder, and salt. Mix everything and also adjust the consistency by adding more or less water. Simmer the rasam for 2-3 minutes.

Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds, dry red chilies, and curry leaves, and let them splutter. Pour the tempering over the rasam.

Serving suggestion –

The mango rasam has the perfect balance of sweet, spicy, and sour flavors. This is best-served piping hot, making it a great addition to a meal, or even as a soup.

Well, the September month challenge in the ‘Shhhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge’ group was the ‘Chutneys and Condiments’, suggested by Preeti. Well, I was partnered with Kalyani for this theme who gave me 2 secret ingredients as Brown Sugar and Coffee; and I gave her Clove and Nutmeg. She prepared Mixed Fruit Jam using those secret ingredients. And as usual, using my two ingredients I have also come up with this Coffee Jelly for the theme contribution.

And, yes !!!

    Rasam is something that comes to my mind when I want something to really feel pepped up on a low day, or when the body is feeling unwell. This rasam is definitely tickling all those feelings. The combination of mango and mint sounds really delicious… Beautiful clicks as usual…
