Chettinad Chicken Rasam (Aaya's Style)


Category : ,

This is a very authentic Chettinad recipe that goes very well with white rice. Also this can be had as a soup and is one of the best comfort food when you have cold :-)


For the Stock:

Chicken: All the non meaty parts from a whole chicken (reserve the meaty part for the chicken masalai).
You can also include the neck portion, liver and gizzard.
Turmeric Powder: 1/4 teaspoon.
Chili Powder: a pinch.

Pressure cook the above: 1 whistle + 15 minutes in simmer.

For the Rasam Powder:
1) Dry Red Chillis: 8
2) Coriander seed: 1 teaspoon.
3) Urad dhal: 1 teaspoon
4) Pepper: 1 teaspoon
5) Aniseeds: 1 teaspoon
6) Jeera: 1 teaspoon.
In a little ghee fry the above and grind coarsely.

For the Rasam:
Aniseed: little
Jeera: little
Pepper: little
Curry leaves: few
Tomatoes: 2 large
Tamarind paste: 1/4 teaspoon
Coriander leaves.

Garnishing (this is the secret step to the great tasting soup :-)
Small pearl onion: 2 nos
Garlic pod: 2 nos
(Coarsely crush both the ingredients).
Coriander leaves

1) Prepare the chicken stock and the rasam powder in parallel
2) In a pan, add ghee, then add the seasoning (Aniseed, Pepper and Jeera)
3) Then add curry leaves and the chopped tomatoes
4) Cook the tomatoes until oil oozes out
5) Add the chicken stock
6) Add the Rasam powder
7) Add the tamarind paste
8) Allow the whole mixture to boil for about 10 minutes
9) Then add salt and the secret seasoning.
10) Allow the mixture to boil for 5 more minutes and finally season with chopped coriander leaves.

If it is a bit spicy to drink this rasam, try it with some rice and ghee.

Awesome Chicken accompaniment for rice. My son loved it. He never ate chicken in his life. He is 3 years and this is the best way to introduce chicken in his meal.

He loved this rasam! Thanks for such a detailed recipe.
