Finally mom successfully kick started me and drove me into the kitchen. Started off with a OMG feeling, but I swear its so interesting to cook. Ok Ok no more stories. Off to cooking.

Vaanali(Pan) Rasam


Tomato - 1 Large
Garlic - 5 pods
Pepper - 1 tsp
Jeera - 1/2 tsp
Mustard - 1/2 tsp
Red Chillies - 2
Fenugreek (Vendhayam) - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves
Tamarind - lemon sized ball
Chilly powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Jaggery - for taste
Salt - for taste
Coriander Leaves


Grind tomato, Jeera, garlic and pepper together and keep it aside. Add two spoons of oil in the pan and crackle some mustard seeds in it. Add red chillies, fenugreek seeds and curry leaves and fry for a min. Then add the ground mixture to the pan. Now put in some tamarind paste, chilly powder, turmeric powder, jaggery and salt with adequate water added to it and let it boil for a while. Garnish with coriander leaves. Your yummy vaanali rasam is ready. ;)

Serve it with hot steamed rice and appalam. This can sufficiently be served for 4 ppl.
