Notes

Take nice sweet and tart pineapple and tomatoes also should be tangy enough to give the rasam the exact flavour. Adding pineapple chunks are optional. Don’t leave the rasam to boil,it will spoil the whole flavour. Some times if tomatoes are not tart enough tamarind juice can be substituted. We can do the same rasam without dal also it will be good.
