Hai Everyone….Yesterday night I made Blackforest cake…It came pretty good,I will post the recipe tomorrow.Today I am posting one of the typical south indian dish..Its Rasam..On hearing the name you will think that it is such a easy dish to make.But many of us wont get it perfect and tasty.This recipe is so good,that you don’t need any sidedish with it,you can have it with plain rice on its own.This rasam don’t need the rasam powder that we usually use,we are going to make the perfect rasam from scratch.I added ajinomoto in this rasam..I know it is not good for health,but a little amount wont do anything and in this dish it gives extra taste too,So I recommend you to try this dish with ajinomoto…So hope you all give it a go and leave comments.
