Though I add a bit of Mint Leaves, whenever I have it at home to the Rasam I make, I came across the special Pudina Rasam recipe which every one in the family liked very much. Infact it turned out to be a great soup too.

Mint Leaves - 1/2 bunch
Tomato - 2 nos (big sized) 
Garlic - 2 to 3 flakes
Cumin Seeds - 2 tsp
Pepper - 1/2 tsp
Red Chilli - 1
Tamrind Paste - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Hing - a pinch
Rasam Powder - 1 tsp
Ghee - 2 tbsp

Add 2 cups of water to tamrind paste and mix thoroughly. Cut tomatoes into small pieces. Add salt, finely chopped tomatoes and rasam powder to the tamrind paste and boil it.

Grind fresh mint leaves, garlic, cumin seeds, pepper  and add it to the boiling tamrind water. Let it boil again. When it bubbles remove from flame.

In a pan add ghee and when hot add mustard seeds, when it splutters add the red chilly and asafodeita. Add it to the Pudina Rasam.

Decorate it with fresh mint leaves.
