Kattu Saaru

Kattu means left over water from the cooked dal.[You take that water and make rasam. You can use the only dal content for either pooran or muddhi_palya and so on.]

Ingredients and Method:

Please refer Rasam(saaru) . The only difference is that you do not add dal. The procedure is simple. After the tamarind water is boiled thoroughly with tomatoes and rasam powder add water that is left over from the cooked dal. The other optional thing is we add 2 tbsp of jaggery. Kattu saaru has a mixture of sweetness(jaggery), spicyness(rasam powder), and sourness(from tamarind).
