Here's a recipe for making rasam using MTR rasam powder in an Instant Pot:

- 1/2 cup Toor dal (pigeon peas)
- 2 tomatoes, chopped
- 1 tbsp tamarind paste
- 2 tsp MTR rasam powder
- 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
- Salt, to taste

- 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
- 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
- 1/4 tsp asafoetida (Hing)
- 1-2 dried red chilies

  1. Rinse the Toor dal and set it aside.
  2. Set the Instant Pot to sauté mode and heat the ghee.
  3. Add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, asafoetida, dried red chilies, and curry leaves. 
  4. Sauté for a few seconds until the mustard seeds start to splutter. 
  5. Then press the Cancel button.
  6. Add the rinsed Toor dal, chopped tomatoes, tamarind paste, MTR rasam powder, turmeric powder, salt, and water.

  9. Open the lid and give the rasam a stir.
  10. Let the rasam simmer on sauté mode for a few minutes until it reaches the desired consistency.
  11. Turn off the Instant Pot and garnish with chopped cilantro.
