Usirikaya Charu/ Usirikaya Rasam/ Amla Rasam/ Indian Gooseberry Rasam/ Nellikai Rasam


I've been wanting to make varieties using Amla or Usirikay. Previously, I've tried pacchadi, and it's one of my favourites now! What are your go-to recipes to make with Amla? Do let me know.
I haven't added any chilli powder here as my homemade rasam powder has pepper and red chillies in it.

However, anything that is good for your health doesn't mean eating in massive amounts. 
Eat your food as medicine. Otherwise one should eat medicines as food. 

     To Make this recipe, you'll need : 

Amla - 3 big sized 
Tomato - 1 big sized 
Oil - 2 teaspoons
Garlic pods - 3 
Mustard seeds - 1/2 teaspoon 
Cumin seeds/ jeera - 1/2 teaspoon 
Dried red chilli - 2 
Curry leaves - 1 sprig 
Asafoetida / hing - 1 or 2 puffs 
Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon 
Rasam podi/ powder - 3 teaspoons 
Salt - to taste 

Method : 

1. Begin by chopping the amla by discarding the seed and the tomatoes, and grind them into a fine paste using the necessary water. 

2. Now, in a cooking pot, add oil, followed by mustard seeds, cumin seeds, garlic pods, 
red chillies (no picture), curry leaves, and asafoetida.

3. When the tempering is all well cooked, add the amla and tomato paste, followed by turmeric powder and salt. Add water according to the sourness of the amlas and the rasam consistency. Add the rasam powder, and check for taste. Boil this rasam for 1 to 2 minutes and garnish with coriander if you wish. 

4. It's done!
