Malnad style bili saaru or moong dal tomato rasam recipe explained with step by step pictures. Bili saaru or mung dal, tomato and lemon rasam is prepared using green gram dal, coconut, tomato, green chili and lemon. Hesarubele bili saru or moong dal rasam is very tasty, healthy and goes very well with rice.
This Malnad style hesaru bele bili saaru or mung dal tomato rasam is sour, a bit spicy, filled with lemon flavour and a very good appetizer. Especially when you are down with cold and fever...this rasam is very soothing and comforting. I have few more recipes using green gram like green gram salad (hesaru bele kosambari), green gram dal payasa (hesaru bele payasa), green gram curry and green gram sprouts salad.
There is another simple version of this hesarubele saaru or mung dal rasam, which is not having tomato in it. Do read that also.
