A sweet ,sour and spicy rasam , the Pineapple rasam tastes amazing when served with hot rice and papads. The chopped pineapple pieces bring a delectable sweetness to this tangy and spicy rasam .This is kind of festive rasam.

    * 1/2 cup Tur dal / Red gram dal /Kandi Pappu

    * 1/4 tsp of turmeric
    * 1 1/2 tbsp Rasam powder (as required according to your taste)

3. Add pineapple puree and continue to cook on low flame for 2-3 mins, so that the pineapple absorbs the spices in the rasam.
4. Meanwhile in a small pan heat oil and add the mustard seeds and when they splutter add cumin seeds,hing, curry leaves and stir fry for a second.Turn off heat.
5.Add this to the rasam and combine.Garnishing with chopped coriander  allow it to stay on the stove for another 2 minutes. Turn off the stove and place the lid.
6. Serve with rice and a dollop of ghee and appadams or drink it just like that.


I have mentioned about Rasam Powder, you can use even the store bought ones available in Indian shops.

    wow! pineapple rasam. The taste would be great. I like pineapples very much. My grand parents own farm where they grow pineapples along with other vegetables.

    I often have pineapple juice when I am there.

    The loading problem still exists Sireesha. I think you should change the theme.
