Paruppu urundai rasam | Dal dumplings rasam recipe. A traditional South Indian version of rasam, with steamed dal dumplings. Protein-rich paruppu urundai rasam recipe with full video and step-by-step pictures.

Rasam is one of the staple dishes in South Indian cuisine. We make many varieties of rasam. We make rasam with or without dal. Some rasams we make with tamarind and some without tamarind. Also in the traditional Tamil brahmin rasam do not add garlic. We make Poondu rasam but in traditional tomato paruppu rasam we don’t usually add garlic cloves.

Rasam is also made using fruit in Tamilnadu cuisine. Yes we make Pineapple rasam and Orange rasam too. I have tried Strawberry rasam also in one of my cookery demos.

We make paruppu urundai kuzhambu, which will be a slightly thick gravy. I wanted to try out this rasam for a long time, finally made it yesterday. It was a super hit at home. We all loved it with hot rice and it was perfect for the winter weather.
