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..
