– Heat a small pan or kadai and add the horsegram. – Dry roast it over medium-low heat until the horse gram turns deep brown/red. As you roast, you will hear the popping sound; and always roast in medium-low or even low heat.
– Transfer the roasted dal to a bowl and add water. Let it soak. – Discard the water and add 2 cups of fresh water, and pressure cook the roasted horsegram for 4 to 5 whistles. Let the pressure subside naturally and set it aside.
– Let the rasam simmer for two more minutes. – Now add the ground horsegram, stock water, and ½ cup of water. Mix well. Check for taste, and if needed, add salt. At this stage, you can add jaggery if using.
– Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer the rasam until it’s frothy. Do not boil the rasam after adding the dal.
