Coming to this Avarekalu Rasam , its basically a Karnataka special Rasam , made from few freshly roasted spices and fresh Avarekalu . This rasam tastes so good when made with fresh tender hyacinth beans.

Some people make this rasam using Chilksida avarekalu ie Double deskinned Hyacinth beans , where in the thin peel on each seed is removed by soaking in water . Rasam made with double deskinned beans has its own unique taste. But if you don’t have time to double deskin , you could still do the rasam like this directly

Few Points to note while making Avarekalu Rasam :

  • Fresh beans makes the rasam more flavorful .
  • Cook Avarekalu such that they are well cooked but not mushy . They should hold shap[e , but when pressed soft .
  • You can make this rasam just with the seeds or with hitak bele / chilkavare . Each has their own taste .
  • Don’t forget to add a ladle of cooked avarekalu while grinding masala. That will give the rasam nice texture and flavor .
  • If you don’t like garlic you can omit it but authentic way of making it calls for addition of garlic.
  • If you don’t have Kapok buds ie marathi moggu , you can skip . But adding it gives good taste .
