Rasam is one of the easiest dish I can imagine...We used to have rasam daily in our house..Mum used to say that rasam is a must because it helps in digestion..
A Typical lunch in our house will have rice,any strong gravies like sambar or vathakulambu some sidedishes like cabbage,potatoes or beans and the important one rasam and to finish everything a little of curd and pickle....
My mum makes rasam in her own way...But mine is totally different...I always make rasam like this..
Now I have discovered another way of making it...That is a recipe from kerala...This has a nice aroma of coconut oil in it which is traditional in kerala..
So hope you like it...
