Koppam Rasam

Seriously!!! I really dunno y this rasam was named Koppam. Mom said so, so do I call it too.. :)

But if I was given a choice to name it, I would call it Aroma Rasam. Because this rasam has a very interesting and yummy smell. You will know when I tell you the secret here..


Coconut - 1 tblsp
Green Chillies - 4

Garlic - 5 pods
Onion - 1 large

Tamarind - lemon sized ball
Salt - for taste
Curry leaves

Coriander leaves


Grind coconut, green chillies, garlic and onion together. Now take this in a bowl, add tamrind paste, salt, curry leaves, coriander leaves and add enough water to it and let it boil for a while. Koppam rasma is ready to eat. :)

Serve with hot steamed rice and chips. :)
Variety in samayal makes life interesting. Happy cooking. :)

Rasam looks delicious and very nice pic.The name Koppam may came from Koppara/Koppari(coconut).
