I made this Amla Rasam as part of Tamilnadu Thali. This Rasam is made with fresh amla and really good for your health. The process is really simple, everyone loved the taste of refreshing Rasam.

Green chilies: 5 chopped
Cilantro/Coriander leaves : 1 bunch, chopped
Salt to taste

Turmeric: 1/2 teaspoon

For Tempering:
Dry red chilies : 2
Jeera/Cumin seeds : 1/2 teaspoon

Take amla pieces, cilantro and green chilies in a small blender and make into a paste.
Heat oil in a saucepan and add whole black pepper and fry for 1 minute.
Add the amla paste and fry for 2 minutes or until the smell goes away.
Add turmeric, salt and water. Bring it to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. Turn off the stove.
Heat oil for Tempering and add all ingredients except curry leaves, fry for 1 minute. Add curry leaves and add the Tempering to the Rasam.
Serve hot with rice.
