KALYANA RASAM |IYENGAR KALYANA RASAM

RASAM WITHOUT TAMARIND

  Kalyana rasam i recently learnt this from a friend of mine, and i was quite impressed by the taste and asked her for the recipe of this kalyana rasam. She gave me the recipe and when i asked her how you name this rasam, she told they call it as Iyengar rasam . When i was thinking how to name this rasam, Raks  suggested me name it as Iyengar Kalyana Rasam.  This rasam doesn’t include tamarind and Sambar Powder and Rasam Powder too. Now i am making this kalyana rasam almost twice in a week.

kalayana rasam 1

INGREDIENTS [SERVES 4-5]

TOMATO 2

GHEE 1/2 TSP

RED CHILLI 2
CUMIN SEEDS 1/4 TSP

kalyana rasam 2

  • Grind the tomatoes into a puree and reserve 1/4 portion of the tomatoes before grinding.
  • Chop the 1/4 th tomatoes finely and keep them aside.

  • Roast the ingredients under the “TO ROAST AND GRIND” table with 1/4 tsp of ghee.
  • Add cumin in the last and switch off the flame.
  • Allow it to cool and grind it into a fine paste by adding little water.

  • Add this paste to the tomato puree and transfer everything to the vessel in which you are going to make rasam. Add turmeric powder, asafoetida and salt to this.
  • Allow this to boil in a low flame for 8-10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile cook the toordal and add 1 to 1 and 1/2 cups of water to the dal and add this to the boiling tomato mixture.
  • When it comes to a froth switch off the flame and garnish with curry leaves and coriander leaves.

  • When it is hot add the reserved ,chopped tomatoes to this and temper with  mustard seeds.
  • the tomatoes will get cooked in the hot rasam and will give a very good aromatic flavor.

Note:

  1. You can add 1 tblsp of coconut while grinding .
  2. While roasting the masala add the cumin seed in the last else it will give a bitter taste.

  8. It is also called poritha rasam (when making on non-wedding days at home) and is usually given as a staple to new Mums in order to avoid tamarind that is believed to cause anemia.

    1. Sowmya, I think, like many traditional dishes this rasam is known by many names and probably has variations in preparations depending on the region. Like you say, "what is in the name" - totally agree

  36. Hi Jeyashri, Thanks for this recipe, I am going to try it out today. How do you get that slight sweet taste? does it come from the tomato itself or vellam/gur is to be added may be a pinch of it? - Ramya

    1. I didn't add vellam to this, but if u feel it is spicy for you you can add a very small piece.

  37. Hi Jeyashri,

    I just love your blog, I almost a receipe every day. I have a question for you, when u say few tbsp of cooked dal, its tough to judge the quantity for me (I cannot just cook few tbsp of dal right). May be some tips for bachelor like me.

    1. Thank you so much for the compliment. Regarding 1 tblsp of cooked dal you just cook 1 -2 tsp of dal in a small cup while cooking rice in the pressure cooker. This will be enough

  38. Jeyashri, this rasam is a big hit in my family. It is solo tasty and very simple to make. My husband ask me to make this rasam almost twice a week. Thank you soooooo much. I just have a small clarification. When u mean one cup of water to add to dhal, approximately what is the measurement of a cup like 100ml or 200 ml? I am just bit confused on that measurement , even though I adjust the water content according to the taste.

    Thanks
    Ramya

  40. Hi Jeyashri, I tried this Kalyana Rasam today. It came out excellent. I have tried your mushroom masala, green peas masala and now this Rasam. All the recipes in your site have great details and we all appreciate it so much. For Rasam I just added 1 tsp coriander seeds while roasting with the other ingredients, but the rest followed exactly. Great work! Thank You!

    Today, I started searching online for making rasam.... Positively I got into ur blog where I found this Kalyana Rasam.... I did it and hopefully got good comments from parents saying it should start doing like this always..... happy today....

    THANK YOU SO MUCH... this blog seems to be more useful for me... Am sure, gonna try other recipes and surprise my Brother too:)

  43. Wow !! Came out very well jeyashri. Very tasty.. Liked this Rasam without tamarind. Thanks for the recipe

  44. Hi Jeyashri -Your blog and recipes are amazing. I visit your blog often. As one of the comments already mentioned it, this is caled Poritha Rasam and is usually made on duvadasi at my place when you are not supposed to consume tamarind that day. So my mom makes this rasam with agathi keerai and nellikai pachadi. I currently stay in the US and dearly miss these recipes. Thanks so much for bringing back the fond memories.

    Best,
    Shree
