Mango Moong Dal Rasam . 

Today I prepared Moong Dal Rasam for Lunch . I prepare different types of Rasam but never tried Mango Moong Dal Rasam . It turned out delicious. Do try and Share your feedback with me. For any Rasam recipe I squeeze Juice of Lime at the end or use tamarind. . Thought I will try with Mango instead of Lime Juice. It is a Keep sake recipe. I remember My mother use to dry out Mango Pieces in Summer and store in a Box and use whole year in Dals and Curries instead of Lime Juice. But here , I buy Raw mangoes in Indian store in Spring and Summer. We love mangoes( Raw or Ripe)  . I need to try more recipes with Mango. I shared Raw mango Chutney with Coconut and Spices. You can find the recipe link at the end .The Leftover rasam will taste good for next day . I prepared for 2 days. No Cooking tomorrow . I added  Home made Rasam Powder . The speciality of this Rasam powder is I added Sesame seeds . Surprise, it tasted good .  As I don’t want to Cook one more Curry so  I  added Carrots , but it is not Sweet  .It is a One Pot Meal  . Even I added Tomatoes , but it is not too Sour. Here is a Simple Rasam recipe .
