Microwaved Tomato Rasam

04 March, 2013

Microwaved Tomato Rasam

Rasam is a type of South Indian soup. Rasam is a fat- free, digestive and also good for the throat when suffering from cold . I am trying it for the 1st time. I've heard of many types of rasam-apple rasam, lemon rasam etc but I have made tomato rasam. Tamarind juice, along with chillies, cumin and tomato are added to give it a special but delicious taste. Many blogs have at least one rasam recipe so I thought of making it and it turned out to be better than I thought! So, those who have not made rasam yet, don't waste time, try it out. (And don't forget to comment or subscribe!! Njoy!)
