Potato curry and Paruppu Rasam Recipe | Lunch Recipes

Paruppu Rasam and Potato Curry is one of the most comforting lunch I prefer esp during the winters.

We dont really prefer rasam in our daily meals and it comes to presence only during festive occasions and when guests are there for lunch. But now since mittu needs either sambar or rasam for lunch amma makes rasam on and off. Here is my easy lunch menu for one of those lazy mondays :)

1.Soak tamarind in 1/2 cup of hot water and extract tamarind juice, keep aside.Fry roast jeera and pepper until nice aroma rises, switch off. Cool down and grind it to a powder.
Paruppu Rasam Recipe - Step12.Heat oil in a seperate pan, add mustard seeds, curry leaves, hing and green chillies followed by tomatoes and crushed garlic.Saute till raw smell of tomatoes leaves.Now add tamarind extract with little water, allow it to boil till its frothy may be for 5-7mins.Paruppu Rasam Recipe - Step23.Add jeera pepper powder, required salt and allow it to boil for 3mins. Pressure cook toor dhal in 1/2 cup water until mushy. Mash the dhal with boiled water.Paruppu Rasam Recipe - Step3Add cooked dhal allow it for another boil, add chopped coriander leaves and switch off.My Notes:
  • Always add a hint of garlic with potatoes to avoid gastric issues.
  • After dhal is added, dont give more than a single boil.
  • Dont boil rasam for more time as it will give a bitter taste. Also amma always says not to add any tamarind mixed dishes in iron kadai so I make rasam in indalium kadai.

  41. My favourite way to have rasam is in a large cup, piping hot during the dreary winter months! I've always bought mine as take-away from our favourite dosa place, but never tried making on my own. This recipe looks simple and delicious, and I'm definitely giving it a go soon!

  47. Hi Sharmi!

    So good to see my voted recipe is up here :)

    I had Rasam in train some three yrs back, as a soup and loved it so much. I was wondering if rasam is had like curry with steamed rice and the potato curry ( i wonder why this is called curry when its dry item,i'm sure there is a story behind, do share with us) as a side dish?

    Or is there some other way to have this?

    I'm looking forward to prepare this for my parents tomorrow afternoon, please let me how this is best served with.

    Thanks,
    Sw

  48. @Anon : This is not very dry like potato fry so we call it curry :) This is best when served with sambar or rasam mixed with rice. You can roast it a bit more to make it more dry, which is best with any variety rice like coconut, lemon rice or even curd rice....Hope this clarifies!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Both look perfect for lunch.
