  • Pressure cook the toor dal (Thuvaram paruppu) with 3 cups of water adding a pinch of turmeric and keep aside.
  • Soak the tamarind in 1 cup of water for 10 to 15 min and extract the water alone.
  • In a kadai or pan, add oil, mustard seeds and cumin seeds, red chillies, curry leaves and fry for a min. 
  • Add the Pineapple pieces and add ghee and saute well or till they become little soft.
  • Now add the tomato pieces or crushed tomato.
  • Now add in the tamarind water, dal water, salt, pepper powder, rasam powder, Asafoetida and if needed add 1 more cup of water and cook in medium flame.
  • When it starts boiling, add in the sugar/jaggery(optional) and coriander leaves and switch off.
  • Serve the hot and sweet pineapple rasam with rice and papad.

  •  Since my pineapple is sweet, i didnt add sugar.
  •  Any dhal water can be used.
  •  Dal can also be crushed nicely and added to the rasam
