in #food5 years ago

Serves: 4 1/4 cup toor dal 1 cup water a piece of fresh ginger (2 1/2 cm, 1 in), peeled and grated 4 green chills 1/2 tsp. cumin seeds 3/4 tsp. black peppercorns 1 1/2 cups water 1/2 tsp. ground turmeric salt to taste 2 tomatoes, quartered juice of 1 lemon coriander leaves, chopped to garish For Seasoning: 2 tsp. ghee 1 tsp. brown mustard seeds 1/2 tsp. asafoetida powder 1 red Chile, halved a few curry leaves

Wash Toro dal well. Drain. Place dal in a heavy saucepan. Cover with 1 cup water
and bring to the boil. When boiling, cover pan with a lid, leaving slightly ajar. Lower the heat, and simmer dal gently for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until soft. Stir several times during the last 30 minutes of cooking. (The water should be mostly gone). Set dal aside without draining. Using an electric blender or food processor, blend the fresh ginger and green chills into a paste. Now blend or process the cumin seeds and black peppercorns into a powder. Set both aside. Place the un-drained cooked dal in a heavy saucepan. Add 1 1/2 cups extra water, ground turmeric, salt to taste, and ginger/chilli paste. Slowly bring to the boil. Seasoning: Heat 2 tsp. ghee in a heavy frying pan or skillet. Add mustard seeds, asafoetida powder, halved red chilli, a few curry leaves, and pepper/cumin seed powder. When the mustard seeds splutter, add this mixture to the rasam. Turn off the heat and add the lemon juice. Garnish with cilantro/coriander leaves. Serve hot with rice.
