Here is my recipe.
2 cups cooked dal (lentils)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 tbsp mustard seeds
4-5 curry leaves
1 tbsp ghee
1 tbsp rasam powder
In a sauce pan, bring two cups of water to a boil
Add the cooked dal
Squeeze the lemon and add the juice to the dal
Add the rasam powder and the chili powder
Turn down the heat to medium or low
In a separate pan, heat up the ghee, add the mustard seeds, add a pinch of asafetida.
Turn off the heat and add the curry leaves to the hot ghee.
Add this mix to the rasam in the sauce pan
Garnish with chopped cilantro
Add salt to taste

With or without rice, Lemon Rasam is a great tasting dish.
Bon appétit :)
