Paruppu Urundai Rasam

Posted By Vardhini On March 4, 2012 @ 8:08 pm In Blogging Marathon,Gallery,Indian,Side Dishes | No Comments

Final day of the blogging marathon with theme ‘Rasam”. I love paruppu urundai kuzhambu and when I saw this recipe in K’s faithful cookbook I wanted to try it. So the first day was the kuzhambu and I saved few balls for the rasam the next day. The rasam was easy to put together since I already made the balls, otherwise there is prep work involved.
The lentil balls took on a mild tamarind flavor and were tasty. Don’t forget to make the rasam ahead of time so the balls have a chance to soak up. K found it amusing that I was transforming kuzhambu’s into rasams like the mor rasam and then this one :) . This marathon was great as I was able to try out various rasams. Recipe from an Indian cookbook written by Mrs.Vedavalli Venkatachari.
