Pineapple Rasam Without Dal | Pineapple rasam | Rasam Recipe

Pineapple rasam , a delicious and tangy rasam with wonderful pineapple flavor. Rasam is a integral part of south indian meal. But i have seen people running away from dinning table when they hear the word "Rasam" and also sarcastically claim rasam as visham (poison). 

For me, i love rasam like anything right from childhood, rice with rasam and thogayal is one of my favorite combo and love to have them any time now also. But so far, i stick with the my basic rasam recipe and very rarely give it a  try  on other varieties.

I have heard about this pineapple rasam a lot, hence i want to try this for a while, finally i have made it today. When i searched for pineapple rasam recipe online, all of them has dal in it, as i said earlier i like simple rasam without dal. 

Therefore i have used my rasam recipe as base and made this pineapple rasam without any dal, it turned out awesome, the flavor was so good and the mild sweetness from the pineapple really enhance the taste of rasam.
