Lemon Rasam

My favorite. It can be had with rice or just as a soup. It's very quick and easy to make.

Ingredients :

Moong daal - 1 small cup
Green chillies - 3 or 4 - finely chopped
Mustard seeds
Salt to taste
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Lemon juice

Pressure cook the moong daal with turmeric powder.
In little oil, pop mustard seeds and jeera. Add green chillies, curry leaves and hing and fry for sometime. Add the cooked daal. Salt and let it boil for sometime. Add some more water and let it cook till it starts bubbling. After it cools down a bit add the lemon juice.

Note: If you are using juice from lemon and not the lemon squeeze or real lemon do not reheat as it will give a bitter taste. You can also add ginger if you want. Another way of doing it is by adding rasam powder and let it boil till the raw smell of the rasam powder goes away. This makes it spicier.

Picture will be uploaded later.
