Beetroot Rasam: A Cozy Soup For Chilly Weather


Welcome to the world of Beetroot Rasam, a warm and comforting soup perfect for chilly weather. Let's dive into the recipe and discover its deliciousness!


First, gather all the ingredients: beetroot, tamarind, tomatoes, garlic, cumin, mustard seeds, curry leaves, and of course, rasam powder. Don't forget to add a pinch of love!


Peel and chop the beetroot into small pieces. Boil them in a pot with tamarind water until they are soft and tender. This will give the soup its vibrant color and tangy flavor.


In a separate pan, heat some oil and add in the mustard seeds, cumin, and curry leaves. Once they start to splutter, add in the chopped garlic and sauté until golden brown.


Next, add in the chopped tomatoes and cook until they are mushy. Then, add in the boiled beetroot and tamarind mixture. Let it simmer for a few minutes.


Now, it's time to add in the star ingredient - rasam powder. This blend of spices will give the soup its signature flavor and aroma. Don't be shy, add a generous amount!


Let the soup simmer for a few more minutes, allowing all the flavors to come together. You can adjust the consistency by adding more water if needed.


Once the soup is ready, turn off the heat and let it cool down for a bit. Then, blend it into a smooth puree using a hand blender or a regular blender.


Finally, pour the soup into bowls and garnish with some fresh coriander leaves. Serve it hot with some steamed rice or enjoy it as is for a light and healthy meal.
