Pineapple with rasam is really amazing combination, I love to explore different kinds of flavors and taste in different cuisines. I have available pineapple at home in big amount, so this time I tried or use pineapple in rasam as pineapple flavour. It gives sweet and tangy punch to regular rasam and makes healthier. You can serve rasam with individual meal or with rice and papad as side dish. It’s a perfect dish for winter or monsoon season. For this recipe, you have to cook pineapple and tomatoes along with cooked toor dal and homemade rasam powder.
