Apple Rasam!

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
When Nithu announced her unique event! I kept on thinking about what you can prepare with fruits. I gave lot of work to my brain.
 I wanted to try something new, but was not sure what!! Then, last week, when my mother was eating this apple, after her first bite, she complained that the apple is very sour like tomato!! Ding!!!

I got an idea, to try  apple rasam and taste it! Yes, it turned out yummy.
But  I think I delayed in posting it, as Nithu has already posted "Apple Mor Kuzhambu / Apple Buttermilk Gravy". Even though the taste is totally different, I was thinking I will be the first one to do something with apple!! (so much pride or ego I do have no!!)
Anyways, Coming to the recipe,
Apple - 1
(take the juicy apple, so that when you grate it, you will get long thin apple threads.)
Tomato -1 small, chopped, jut to get the color
Curry leaves - few
Green chilly - 1
Garlic - 1 bulb, peeled and crushed
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Red chilly powder - 1 tbsp
Coriander powder - 1tsp
Sugar - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Fresh coriander to garnish
Oil - 1 tbsp

Wash the apple, and grate it.
Heat the oil in a vessel. Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds and wait till they crackle. Add garlic and wait till brown. Now add curry leaves and green chilly and fry for a minute. Add chopped tomato and all the dry powders. Add grated apple and little water. Let it boil for a minute. Put some more water to suit the taste. Boil it for few minutes. The apple rasam is ready to serve. You will enjoy the apple taste while drinking.
Sending this to

Keep Smiling,
