Udupi Tomato Rasam/ Udupi Saaru

By September 25, 2013

I always wanted to make this upupi style rasam or as they call saaru. Its called in telugu the same way too. I love the flavor of dhal dominating this rasam and it uses very less tamarind and absolutely no garlic and yet the flavor of this rasam is very good. I had this with brinjal fry and beans usili, it tasted so good. So posting this recipe to A-Z Blogging Marathon conducted by srivalli and also linking to preeti space. Under alphabet "U" & this comes under My last regional category recipe.

1. In a pressure cooker boil tomato and dal together. To this add turmeric powder and let it boil for 5-6 whistles.

2. In a pan dry fry the ingredients shown above for rasam powder, then powder them in a blender.

3. Now in a pan do the seasoning mentioned above, to this add the dal &tomato mix and let it boil for few mins. To this add rasam powder and let it boil for few more mins. If the tomato is not ripe enough use little tamarind paste. Then add 1 glass of water and let it boil for few more min. To this add jaggery and salt and  stir it well. Udupi rasam are usually thick when compared to tamil rasam and use of jaggery is must in Karnataka dishes.Then garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves.

4. Serve it hot with beans usili or brinjal fry.
