Methi (Menthula) Rasam

Methi (Menthula Rasam)

 

Learnt this Dish from my sister,this is so simple to prepare but tastes good and healthy.As fenugreek /methi/Menthulu are considered as a kind of medicine for diabetes.When 2 tbsps of seeds are soaked and then boiled with 4-6 cups of water till the seeds are well boiled and the water is taken for joint pains and to reduce blood sugar levels.But as this way it tastes slightly bitter preparing rasam is the best way to consume and can be taken as soup too.

Ingredients

Oil – 1tsp

Cumin/Jeera – 1/4 tsp

Mustard seeds – 1/4 tsp

Methi/Fenugreek/Menthulu seeds – 1 tbsp

Black peppercorns – 1/4 tsp

Curry leaves – 1 sprig

Onion – 1 small chopped

Garlic – 2 pods crushed

Turmeric powder – 1/8 tsp

Tamarind – marble size

Water – 7 cups

Salt to taste

 

Method

Heat oil in a sauce pan,add cumin,fenugreek,mustard and pepper and give it a nice toss DO NOT burn.

Lower heat and add the chopped onion,crushed garlic and curry leaves and stir for about 2mins DO NOT fry the onions much but just let them turn transperant and immediately add turmeric powder and water.

To the pan add washed tamarind NO NEED to extract juice or pulp,because we boil this for about 15-20 mins to get all the goodness of fenugreek/methi into the rasam.add salt and cover .

Once it starts to boil simmer for about 20 mins as said above.

Can be served with rice and any veg curry.
