Goda saaru

Goda saaru is a simple soup recipe from Karnataka.It is in fact a rasam with a twist. It does not contain any dal or lentil. It can be a good accompaniment to moong dal khicdi or rice with ghee. This is so especially, when we would like to have alight dinner & even when ware suffering from a bad throat.

The sourness in this rasam or saaru as it is called in Kannada comes from tamarind paste .I have used kokum in this recipe as kokum is a good replacement for tamarind except that it is less sour than tamarind.

Ingredients : 6-7 kokum pieces, 2-3 cups water, 1/2 tsp black pepper powder, 1 tbsp  tsp ghee, 1-2 byadgi mirchi broken into pieces, 2-3 sprigs of curry leaves, 1/2  tsp mustard,  1/2  tsp jeera, 1/4 tsp haldi, 1/4 tsp hing, 1 tbsp gur or jaggery, salt to taste.

Method : Take a pan .Heat it. Add ghee. After it melts, add mustard.After they pop up, add jeera. followed by  byadgi mirchi & curry leaves.Add pepper powder.Add hing & haldi & mix all nicely. Add 2-3 cups water.Add kokum pieces.Add jaggery ( grate jaggery if jaggery is very hard or add by breaking jaggery into smaller pieces ).Let all come to a boil.Let it boil for 5 minutes. Add salt. Mix nicely.Let it come to one more boil so that salt has mixed nicely. Put off gas. Serve goda saaru with monng dal khicdi or plain rice with ghee. Goda saaru can be drunk just like that to give relief top sore throat.
