Rasam is a very comforting food, especially during the winter season or when your down with a fever or cold. When you want to make a simple and quick lunch, rasam is one of the best options. Hot piping rasam with rice and potato fry makes a satisfying and tasty meal. I have already shared few rasam recipes - paruppu rasam, lemon rasam, tomato rasam and mysore rasam, so today I'm sharing the garlic rasam recipe.
Garlic is well know for its health benefits. Garlic is a good source of several vitamins and minerals which helps to strengthen the immune system. It lowers blood sugar & cholesterol levels and helps to fight chest infections and coughs. This rasam with garlic and pepper is a good home remedy for cold, sore throat and fever. We enjoyed this rasam with potato podimas, rice and appalam.
Notes and Tips
- The rasam is on the spicier side, so adjust the spices according to your spice preference.
- Do not boil the rasam once it becomes frothy at the top, otherwise it will not taste good.
- Add water as required after adding ground paste if the rasam seems thick.
