Kollu Rasam | Rasam Recipes

Kollu rasam is my go-to type of soup to make when a cold is going around in my home. It is warm and spicy and just what one needs when down with a bad cold. I know, there is nothing like a good cold :).
I have used the water from cooking the horse gram for making rasam. 

Reserved Water from cooking Kollu
Tamarind - Size of half a lime
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Salt - to taste
Pepper corns - 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Coriander seeds - 1 tsp
Horsegram / Kollu - 1 tsp
Dry Red chilli - 1
Ginger - 1/2 inch
Garlic - 2 cloves

Soak the tamarind in 1 cup of warm water. Place the pepper corns, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, horsegram in a mixie jar and process until fine. Add the ginger and garlic and pulse twice. Extract tamarind juice and add 2 more cups of water to dilute. Add salt, ground spice mix, turmeric powder. Allow it to boil for 3-5 minutes. Add the reserved water and heat for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and serve over rice or in a cup.
