Picked up javvadhu mangoes 10 nos for Rs.50 from Koyambedu market during my recent visit. Have made morkuzhambu n jus wanted to try rasam n it was damn yumm.. Anything made with mangoes SH shakes his head yes.. but not in the case of any other fruit / veggie... Thank god for it... I love mangoes too.. But the best method is chopped mangoes with lunch..

Ripe mango - 1 no, skin removed
Thoor dal-  ½ cup
Rasam powder - 1 tbsp (pepper - 1/2 tsp, cumin - 1/2 tsp, red chillies - 5 nos, coriander seeds - 1 tbsp, fenugreek seeds - 1/4 tsp n gen pinch hing- roast n dry ground coarsely)
Salt as reqd
Mangoes - 2 tbsp, chopped

Ghee - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - ½ tsp
Dry chillies - 2 nos
Curry leaves -  1 sprig
Coriander - 2 tbsp

How to make:

Once it starts to boil add the temeperings and switch it off before it foams up add chopped mangoes and serve hot with rice n papad.


  1. Very interesting rasam with ripe mangoes... I love mangoes much... But i don't have patience to do any recipe with it, so mostly have the whole fruit...

  2. Same minds are think alike. I made it sometime back and clicked it too.. :-) But I just used pineapple rasam inplace of pineapple, mangoes :-)
