I crafted this delicious rasam while searching a way to utilize some sour apple.
Small apple - 2 (sour)
garlic - 4 pearls
whole black pepper - 1 tbsp
cumin seed - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - a pinch
ghee / oil - 2 tsp
Mustard seed - 1/4 tsp
Red chilly - 2
curry leaf - 1 sprig
cilantro - a handful
Lemon - 1/2 (extract juice)
salt - to taste
Chop one apple after coring.
Grind the pepper, cumin and garlic along with one apple.
Heat oil / ghee in a wok.
Let the mustard crackle. Then add a pinch of hing along with red chillies , curry leaf and cilantro.
Core and peel the other apple. Chop it into very small pieces. Put it along with the seasoning and stir well.
Next add the ground mixture , turmeric and saute well till the raw smell vanishes.
Pour 2 cups of water and let it come to a boil.
Put off fire.
Add lime juice and salt to taste.
Apple rasam is ready!
