How to Make Brinjal rasam

  • Soak the tamarind in 1 cup of water and extract the juice.
  • Pressure cook the toor dhal and keep it aside.
  • Clean the brinjals and slit them vertically while retaining the stalks. Immerse them in water to avoid discolouration.
  • Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a pan. Add the peppercorns, red chilli, coriander seeds and channa dhal. Fry.
  • Grind the ingredients to a powder.
  • Add 1 tbsp of oil and fry the brinjals. Keep the fried brinjals aside.
  • Heat the pan and add the tamarind extract juice, salt, hing and curry leaves. Bring to a boil.
  • Now add the fried brinjals and simmer for 5 mins.
  • Add the ground powder to the mixture and boil for 2 mins.
  • Now add the smashed thur dhal and take off the heat.
  • In a separate pan, heat the ghee to temper the mustard seeds.
  • When the mustard seeds splutter, add the curry leaves. Add these to the rasam.
  • Serve hot with rice.
