Jackfruit Soup / Palapazha Rasam

Rasam is always my favorite. After searching in net, got the recipe from Ramani's recipes and thought to give a try. It was really very delicious. Here is the recipe.


  • Jackfruits - 5 to 6
  • Thuvar dhal water - 1/2 cup (Optional)
  • Mustard Seeds - a pinch
  • Tomato - 1 (cut into pieces)
  • Tamarind - 1/2 lemon size
  • Dry Red Chillies - 2 to 3
  • Rasam Powder - 2 tsp
  • Curry Leaves - few
  • Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Pepper seeds - 1/5th tsp (crushed) 
  • Asafoetida - a pinch
  • Coriander leaves - few
  • Oil - 1 tsp
  • Ghee - 1 tsp
  • Salt - as per taste
  • Water - 4 cups
  • Turmeric - a pinch (Optional)
  • Sugar/Jaggery - 1/2 to 1 tsp (Optional)

  • 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 Jackfruit 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 have Jackfruit rasam with rice and papad.
