Pineapple rasam recipe
           I have tasted pineapple rasam only in marriages or in restaurant lunch menus. And definitely it is very unique by its taste and flavour. But neither mom nor MIL make this in their kitchen. But I wanted to try and post in Rak’s kitchen, so referred to the cookbook mom gave and tried. Both me and Vj liked the rasam, I dint tried with Aj yet. I always love pineapple flavour.  Be it pineapple juice or pineapple kesari, I love the fruity smell. The best thing I like in fruit salad with ice cream they serve in Saravana bhavan is pineapple Blushing.  So wanted to try this rasam with my favorite pineapple in it,  for a long time. Atlast I tried and here is the recipe I adapted to suit my taste and convenience. Sure you can impress your guests with this one, inspite of the usual rasams.

  2. Grind one ring/slice of pineapple to paste and keep aside as well. 7-pine
  3. In a bowl, mash 1 tomato and add 1 cup water. Chop other tomato and pineapple slice finely. Mix salt, 3/4th of the ground pepper, jeera and garlic, ground pineapple, rasam powder and turmeric with the mashed tomatoes. 5-pine
  4. In a kadai, temper with the items given under ‘To temper’ table, followed by curry leaves. Add the reserved 1/4th part of jeera, pepper and garlic powder and give a quick stir. 4-pine
  5. Add chopped tomato and pineapple and fry for 3-4  minutes in medium flame. 3-pine

Notes
    • Tangy pineapple is apt for this rasam.
    • Pineapple rasam can be made along with lemon also. I will post that version some other time.
                Serve the flavourful rasam hot, with rice and appalam, along with the other poriyals/ curry.

  15. Hi Raks! I'm so happy to find your blog via tastespotting. A great blog with lots of Indian recipes for me to try! May I know the brand of the grinder you're using? My bullet grinder is not very good at grinding spices and I'm thinking of getting it replaced. Your recommendation will be greatly appreciated :)

  20. Every summer whenever we get pineapples in plenty in the US, I always make pineapple rasam. My version does not have garlic as I feel it might overwhelm the aroma and taste f pineapples...I love love pineapple rasam. My mom always keeps telling that its already hot in summer, and I end up making more heat with the pineapples!!! Lovely clicks raks..
