Pineapple Rasam | Annasi pazha Rasam

Pineapple Rasam
Fresh Pineapple is easily available in market now. I have already posted Pineapple kesari and pineapple citrus punch. Rasam is a South Indian soup served with rice for lunch. The spices in rasam helps in easy digestion. I have already posted lot of rasam recipes. Fresh pineapple pieces and pineapple puree are used for preparing pineapple rasam. I have used mung dal for preparing this pineapple rasam. Mung dal can be replaced with toor dal. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing South Indian Pineapple Rasam | Annasi pazham Rasam.
