Rasam, I can never imagine a meal without that. I love it so much that i have a separate folder for that..I have nearly 15+ rasam recipes..Even though i have quite a few of them, my hunt for new rasam recipes never stop. Among all of those recipes, my favorite ones are malli rasam, pineapple rasam, thippili rasam and i can go on like this..
Now coming to this recipe, it is made with onions..I didn't use any heavy spices in this, just a spoonful of storebought rasam powder is good enough for this. And i totally loved the mild onion taste through the rasam. So give this a try and let me know how it turned out for you..
