Notes

When white foam forms if you leave it then will start to boil. Be careful not to let the rasam to bubble out. If it starts to bubble the rasam loses its aroma. When adding tamarind the correct amount should be added to get nice flavorful rasam. I usually squeeze the tomatoes instead of chopping it to get maximum flavor. Adding jaggery is optional but it tastes great with it.

  1. I love Rasam, one of my favourites from South Indian cuisine. I love the simplicity of your dish which will make each flavour stand out. I also love the garlicky tangy flavour and the aroma of hing. I love it.

  2. It looks sooo yummy. I add garlic in most of my dishes. I am happy to know that I can add this in rasam too. I will try out the recipe. 🙂
