Apple Rasam


I came across this apple rasam from Penmai and wanted to try it out right away. I have tried many varieties of rasam like pepper rasam, paruppu rasam, lemon rasam etc. Apple rasam seems to have a different taste when compared to other traditional rasams. For me, this rasam has a sour taste and very simple and easy to make. Worth trying once!

Chopped Apple – 1 Cup

Boiled and Mashed Toor Dal – 1/2 Cup

Tomato Pieces – 1/2 Cup

Mustard Seeds (kadugu) – 1/2 Teaspoon

Cumin Seeds (seeragam) – 1/2 Teaspoon

Turmeric Powder – 1/2 Teaspoon

Coriander Leaves – As Desired

Curry Leaves – As Desired

Salt – As Desired

Oil – As Desired

Dry Fry & Grind

Toor Dal (Thuvaram paruppu) – 2 Teaspoons

Pepper (Milagu) – 1 Teaspoon

Coriander Seeds (Kothamalli vidhai) – 4 Teaspoons

Red Chillies (Kanja molaga) – 2


1. Grind the ingredients given under the Dry Fry & Grind section.

2. Boil the apple pieces using three cups of water. Boil well, but at the same time, apple pieces should not become mushy or very soft.

3. Add tomato pieces, toor dal, ground paste, turmeric powder and salt in an order. Boil well.

4. In a small pan, heat oil. Add mustard and cumin seeds. When cumin seeds sizzle, add curry leaves and coriander leaves. Fry for a minute and then add the seasoning to the apple rasam.

Now, the Apple Rasam is ready!

Serve. With Rice and Poriyal & Varuval
