Blogging Marathon#66: Week 4/ Day 1 Theme: Bookmarked Recipes Dish: Lemon Rasam from Nalini
We are starting our final week of blogging marathon today and my theme for the week is ‘Bookmarked recipes’. For the first day I made this simple yet very tasty Lemon rasam from Nalini’s blog.
Nalini made it for the April mega marathon and I bookmarked and made it right away. It took this long to post the recipe here. Rasam in our households is made with tomato and tamarind. Toor dal or any kind of dal is not usually added. Our version is rather watery and is usually eaten along with a thicker dal.
But this Tamil Nadu version of rasam uses a little bit of dal for thickening, a freshly ground spice powder for some kick along with sambar powder. Lemon juice is added to make the dish tangy instead of tamarind. It is a very comforting and yummy dish that is perfect to serve with any South Indian meal.
