Lemon Rasam / Dal Soup
( You must be thinking "Whats so special about this ordinary looking Dal?"The flavors of fresh ingredients in this recipe are extraordinary and refreshing. If served with Rice its "Lemon Rasam" whereas , due to its souplike consistancy it can be named and served as "Dal Soup" too.)
Ingredients :
1 Cup cooked Toor Dal , 2 cups water , 1/4 tspn Cumin ,
Salt to taste , 2 tbspn fresh lime juice ,
1/4 tspn pepper powder , 1/2 tspn finely chopped ginger ,
2 tbspn ghee.
Procedure :
Blend Cooked Toor Dal in a Blender. This helps to remove all traces of Dal and looks like paste. Add water per measurement , salt to taste , ginger. Do not blend the dal after adding ginger so that you can enjoy the flavor of ginger. Heat pure Ghee in pan and add cumin till it splutters and then add the dal. Let boil for approximately 10 mins. Make sure that the consistancy of the Dal is souplike. After 10 mins add pepper powder and lemon juice and cover the pa with a lid. Turn off the flame. Let it stay covered for a minute or two. The soup / Rasam is ready to serve .
Variation : No variations recommended for this dish as its flavor make it special. Do not substitute Ghee with oil or exclude pepper, ginger or lemon.
