To begin making the Mango Rasam Recipe, firstly wash the mango, cut the stem and place the entire mango in the pressure cooker along with 1/2 cup of water. Close the cooker with lid.
Pressure cook for 5 to 6 whistles and allow the pressure to release naturally.
When the pressure releases and the mango has cooled, squeeze the pulp out and discard the stone and peels. Add the mango pulp to a mixer grinder, along with half a cup of water and blend to make smooth mango puree. Keep aside.
Cook the toor dal in 1 cup of water for about 5 to 6 whistles and allow the pressure to release naturally. Once the pressure releases, mash the toor dal until smooth and keep aside.
Next, add the ghee in a saucepan. Once the ghee is hot, add mustard seeds, cumin seeds and allow it to crackle.
Once the seeds have crackled add the asafoetida, curry leaves, green chillies, ginger and saute for a few seconds.
