Tamarind : 1 small lemon size
Chopped onion : 1
Chilli Powder : 1/2 tsp
Salt as per taste

For tadka/popu/talimpu

oil : 1 tsp
jeera : 1/2 tsp
mustards : 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves : 4
Turmeric powder : 1/2 tsp
a pinch of hing

Method :
  1. Soak the tamarind in hot water, extract the juice (as much as).
  2. Then add the chopped onions, chilli powder and salt. Mix well
  3. Heat oil, add jeera and mustards, let them pop. Then add the curry leaves, turmeric powder and a pinch of hing.
  4. Mix the above talimpu to tamarind rasam, mix well. Adjust the salt. According to your sour taste, you can add water. I dont like that much sour taste. This is the good combination with mudda pappu.
