Rasam/ Indian Soup My Style

I have learned a few types of rasam from my mom but I thought of creating my version of rasam and it turned out so well. My husband and brother who don't prefer rasam like it very much. I added oyster mushroom sauce to create a different taste, some of you might laugh at this but the taste is really great.  Oyster mushroom sauce is oyster sauce in vegetarian version for those haven't come across this item. It's easily available in super markets, now let's look at how I made this.


1 tomato sliced
1 onion sliced
3 garlic sliced
3 bird eye chili
1 tsp black pepper powder
2 tsp fennel seed powder
1 tsp cumin seed powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp oyster mushroom sauce
1 stalk curry leaves
1 cup tamarind juice
1 cup water
Salt to taste 
1 tbsp oil

In a pan, pour oil and add curry leaves, onion, garlic and bird eye chili saute for a minute. Now add in sliced tomato and cook until soft, then pour in tamarind juice and water. Let it boil, add fennel, cumin, turmeric and black peeper powder.

Add salt and mushroom sauce, let rasam simmer for few minutes and ready to serve. Garnish with coriander leaves.
