Alasandalu Rasam Recipe / Black Eyed Peas Rasam Recipe / Karamani Rasam Recipe

Okay here is another recipe addition to my rasam list..This is one rasam which is requested by my viewer and it was totally new to me when i heard the name. I never knew what it is and had no idea about it..But once i researched about it i came to know that it is nothing but a rasam made with black eyed peas.

Luckily i had them on hand and made it immediately. I cooked it, and used the cooking liquid for this rasam and used the peas for a delicious masala. Will share that too today so wait for it..When i tasted this rasam, it was delicious..

So try this out and let me know how it turned out for you..
