Rasam with Eggplant Roasted Green Chillies and Sesame Seeds Powder. Eggplant rasam is a very tasty rasam recipe served with Steamed rice and Dal . You will like different tastes in one Bowl . Little tangy , sweetness from Jaggery and Creamy taste from Cooked Eggpant . I added the sesame seeds Spice powder. Not only adds flavor but tastes good too. Roast Green chillies and grind along with Sesame seeds or Use mortar and Pestol . What I like about these Eggplant is they Cook fast with minimum Oil . Just pan fry for 3 Minutes on each side. Cool , shred and add to the Rasam. It taste good even after 2 to 3 days ( refrigerate) and serve as a side for Lunch / Dinner . Here is a Simple Rasam recipe with Eggplant.
