Put in salt, asafoetida, tamarind paste and adequate water and let it to boil. Season with mustard and garnish some coriander leaves. Araitha rasam is ready to serve.

Serve it with hot steamed rice along with appalam. It will suffice for 4 servings.

hmmmm I can imagine ppl saying it is almost similar to vaanali rasam. Yeah very true but this rasam includes thoor dhall and the seasoning done at the end gives a different flavour from vaanali rasam. Small variations make big differences na.. ;) Enjoy eating.

And ppl you might ask me y I have been updating rasam recipes only everyday? Good question. Come on I am just learning A B C D of cooking and it will take more time to say chekozlovakia!!! Wait for it plz.. ;)
