Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Our weekend has been fun so far — Saturday we went to a Chinese New year party and learnt to make dumplings from a dear friend. Looking forward to Superbowl Sunday that is going to take place right here is New Jersey. Metlife stadium is about 3~4 miles from where we live, so I’m very excited that the action is taking place so close to us, even though we will be watching the real action on TV!! strange.. right??

Well today I don’t have a recipe for superbowl sunday, I have a everyday dal rasam recipe that is tasty and healthy. Saw it on a cooking show and the recipe is a keeper.

  1. Mmmmmmmmmm! The pics have me drooling and as usual I am finding it to get off the pics and read the recipe. 😀 Will come back to when I am making it. Rt now looking at the ingredients.

  2. I usually just use store bought rasam powder. I was so mad I missed Chinese New Year. I was planning on going to Chinatown but then I had an allergic reaction to something and the medicine made me sleep the whole day 🙁 – glad you had a fun weekend!

  4. Sorry for my late reply. Yes, there is no tamarind in this rasam. But you can add some for more tangy rasam.
