Mysore Rasam

Mysore Rasam with step-by-step photos and recipe.

Mysore Rasam is one of the most famous Rasam recipes from Karnataka. This rasam is made with lentils and whole spices, boiled together with dal and later ground into a paste.

The addition of garlic elevated the taste of this Mysore Rasam. However, I have not added coconut in this recipe as it was not mentioned in the recipe book that I am referring to.

Coming to the recipe book

I had picked up this Classic South Indian lunch recipe book 3 years back from a book store. Living in the south dominant region, South Indian food has always been close to my heart and I totally relish it. Having said that, this recipe book was lying somewhere on my shelf and it finally came out. This book that I am referring to is by a very famous South India Chef Mrs. Mallika Badrinath. So I will go as per her suggestions and recommendations as she is the best guide to teach such authentic recipes.

She teaches a simple and quick way of cooking without spending much time. Moreover, in this Mysore Rasam recipe, she has suggested adding the dry spices in the toor dal while boiling it and not roasting it. Trust me it tastes authentic and delicious. Do check out the detailed step-by-step recipe with pictures below.
