Pudina Rasam | Easy Pudina Rasam Recipe | Mint Rasam

Pudina Rasam
Weather is getting colder these days and last week I was not feeling well, caught with cold and sore throat and wanted to have something warm and spicy. I craved for some hot soup but I don't have vegetable stock/broth and also not well to cook something elaborate. Then our south Indian clear soup aka Rasam came to my mind and also rasam doesn't need much preparation or time, you can make it in a jiffy. Instead of plain Rasam I made this Pudina Rasam/Rasam With Fresh Mint Leaves and it was so soothing and perfect for my sore throat, sipping hot piping rasam with some extra crushed black pepper instantly relieved my congestion and sore throat. I actually, felt better after drinking a cup of Pudina Rasam. Even my kids like to drink rasam more than having it with rice. So next time, when you make rasam do try this Pudina Rasam, it is so flavorful and healthy. Now off to the recipe..

Karamani Masala Sundal | Masala Sundal Recipe | Black Eye Bean Sundal With Sundal Masala | Varuthu Aracha Masala Sundal Recipe

Karamani Masala Sundal
Even though i like to include beans/legumes in my diet, I do not like regular sundal but once in a while like this kind of masala sundal with some spice powder/masala powder. The spices blend enhances the taste and flavor of the sundal. Here's is Karamani Masala Sundal/Spicy Black Eye Bean Sundal. This is almost like my Varuthu Aracha Sundal, this time added some pepper corns to make it bit spicy and also to treat my cold and congestion.
Sundal prepared using legumes and pulses are rich in protein, fiber and low in calories and are perfect filling and healthy snack and sometimes makes a nice side with curd rice or with rice and rasam. We had this Karamani Masala Sundal for our lunch along with curd rice. The masala podi i used for this karamani sundal can be used to make any veggies stir fry or even in puli kuzhambu and Sambar for extra flavor and taste. Now off to the recipe..
