Mysore Rasam

          Day 4 of Blogging Marathon under the theme, Rasam...Today's rasam - Mysore Rasam. I tried this rasam only 2 or 3 times but liked this rasam a lot. This is different from my usual cumin-pepper rasam, with freshly ground masala / rasam powder. I like to add some shredded coconut and jaggery to this rasam. Its completely optional you can add it or skip, but i say that coocnut n jaggery give some fine taste to the rasam. The recipe as follows,

I am too late for today's BM post because of some reason so will update the step wise picture later....
  1. Tuvar Dal    1 fistfull
  2. Tomato    2 medium(mashed or grind)
  3. Tamarind    1tsp(diluted in 1/2 cup of water)
