Method to make Lemon Rasam:
Pressure cook Thoor dal. In a vessel add 2 cups of water, finely chopped tomatoes, green chillies, curry leaves, coriander leaves and salt and bring to boil. Add another 1 cup of water to the thoor dal and mash it well. Add the mashed dal to the boiling mixture and when it bubbles remove from flame and squeeze the lemon juice to it.
Temper mustard seeds,jeera and hing in ghee and add it to the Rasam.
The green chillies can also be added while tempering instead of adding it while boiling.
Adding of Tomato Puree instead of chopped tomatoes helps in cooking even more faster
