Step 2: Remove the green chilli and blend the rest to a puree and pour out into a strainer to take away sediments if any.
Step 3: Now for the seasoning, heat oil, add mustard seeds, while they splutter add the crushed garlic pod and curry leaves to it. Let the garlic turn brown a little, pour it into the rasam.

Easy to make and the taste is not so tangy,not so spicy - yet goes very well with rice and a combination of veg or non veg dishes.
