NEER SAARU/INSTANT LENTIL LESS SAARU(RASAM)

Posted in : SAARU/ RASAM on by : Divya Suresh Tags:

An amazing, easy to prepare, very tasty, instant saaru/rasam which doesn’t use any lentil ! Yes you read it right! It’s a no lentil instant saaru. I learnt this wonderful recipe from the admin of the one of the food groups, by name Mr. Gudda bhatta joshi holalu. I have made it several times since I learnt it. Whenever I plan to make heavy, filling items, I prefer to make this saaru. Even though I know two instant saaru recipes, this has become my most favourite. Just roast & grind the masala, add it to the boiling water, add tamarind, salt etc, put tempering and … the wonderful…tasty saaru is ready to use.
