Bassaru Authentic Karanataka Dish..(Lentil Cabbage Dill Leaves and Beans Rasam)

Bassaru (Rasam).. This is an Authentic Karnataka dish usually made with a variety of lentils Green leaves and Veggies. Bassaru means rasam, made of water which is used for a cooking the lentils, leaves and vegetables. You can cook this rasma with many kinds of lentils and leaves.. I have used toor dal, Cabbage, beans with dill Leaves, as you all know i love cabbage and i think this is the best combination of all and they tastes great. The dish sounds a bit difficult for the beginner but it is easy when you get to use of preparing it and the taste makes it worth the job done. This can be served with hot Rice or Ragi Balls..
 
Actually this Curry is combo of boiled and stirfry vegetables with Rasam while eating... But i have made this as a two recipes, so that it is very easy for my readers to understand in a better way... I'm a huge fan of this Rasam and it makes it even more tastier because i'm cooking this Rasam in UK.:) Every body has there own way of preparing this Rasam, I have learnt like this from my mom and i like this way better...
 

Ingredient's
For Rasam
1 bunch of dill leaves finely chopped
1/2cup toor dal
2cups roughly chopped cabbage
15 beans roughly chopped
1 lagre onion roughly chopped
2tbsp grated coconut
2 medium tomato
5 green chilies, 10 dry red chilies
10 curry leaves, 6 garlic cloves
1/2tbsp black peppercorn, 2tbsp chopped coriander leaves
2tbsp tamarind paste
3cup water
Salt as per taste.
 
 
For Tempering
8 to 10 curry leaves
1/4tsp mustard seeds
2 dry red chilies
2tbsp oil.
 
 
Cooking Method
In a deep kadai or a pan.. add toor dal and 2cup of water boil for 10 minutes.. Then in a same toor dal, add cabbage, beans, dill leaves, onion, salt and 1 more cup of water and boil for another 10 to 15minutes.
In a mean time, dry roast the red chillies, curry leaves, garlic, black peppercorn and green chilies. Put it in a mixer jar along with the coriander leaves and grind to smooth paste, and set it aside.
Again dry roast the tomato and grated coconut, till you get the slightly burning smell.. and grind it to smooth paste and set it aside.
Now drain the water from a boiled dal and veggies, keep the veggies aside (i will tell what to do with this boiled veggies in my next post).. Then add the grounded masala paste and tamrind paste to the boiled water and season with salt..
In a small pan add all the tempering ingredients, when they start spluttering, add it to the Rasam and simmer the rasam on a high flame for 5 to 7 minutes..
The authentic Bassaru (Rasam) is ready to serve.
Serve hot with Rice and Ragi Ball..
