Ginger Soup or Rasam

Ginger soup

Fortunately Chennai has been pretty chill this winter and even more fortunate that winter is still on. The evenings are breezy and pleasant :)

Though it feels good to have a cold climate the side effects of it still remain unpleasant. I mean the cold, cough and fever that it gives us is killing.

On such unpleasant throat conditions, having a piping hot ginger soup or rasam can give you the most soothing experience for sure. The double bonanza is that it would solve digestive issues too!! Aaah that's awesome isn't it!! :)

Ginger soup1

Ingredients:

Ginger - 1 inch piece
Tamarind paste - 1/4 cup
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida - a pinch
Sambhar powder - 2 tblsps
Salt - for taste
Water - 3 cups
Green chillies - 2
Curry leaves
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp

Ginger soup2

Method:

Dissolve the sambhar powder, asafoetida, turmeric powder, tamarind paste and salt in water.

Peel off the skin of the ginger and crush it using a stone. Put the crushed ginger into the rasam.

Chop the green chillies.

Take a tsp of oil in a pan and temper with mustard seeds. Now drop in the chopped chillies and curry leaves and fry for just a min. Now add this to the rasam and bring it to a boil.

Serve piping hot as soup or mix this with rice and have it as rasam.

Enjoy the healthy cup of soup :)
