How to Make Vazhathandu Lemon Rasam Recipe
Soak 1 cup of banana stem dice in buttermilk (2 tbsp curd whisked with water). This prevents it from discolouring.

Add 1 tablespoon coriander powder (dhania), 1 teaspoon cumin powder (jeera), 1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder, 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder (haldi), 1/2 teaspoon black pepper powder. Pressure cook for 2 whistles and release the pressure immediately by holding under running water.
Open the pressure cooker and add ¼ cup cooked toor dal that has been mashed well.
Add1 cup water and the juice of 1 lemon and bring rasam to a brisk boil.
Once it starts frothing, add a small bunch of chopped coriander leaves and turn off the heat. Vazhaithandu lemon rasam is ready.
