Rasam  is a South Indian soup, traditionally prepared using tamarind juice as a base, with the addition of pepper, cumin and other spices as seasonings.

The reason for me to write about Rasam preparation is due to winter and stomach upset that i faced ..lolz :)

During winter we normally feel to eat something hot and spicy .Due to this we face so much of digestion problems .I have gone through the same stuff .

I guess this would help at least one of you ..

Ingredients required  
  • Tamarind
  • Pepper
  • Cumin seed 
  • Garlic
  • Turmeric powder
  • Salt

How to prepare ?

  • Take a small ball of tamarind and soak in water for 15-20 minutes .
  • Drain the tamarind water using a filter or using your hands and pour the tamarind water in a bowl .
  • While the tamarind water is boiling put some salt,turmeric powder ,pepper,cumin seed and garlic in it and keep stirring .
