Andhra rasam
Written by Jayashree
Spread the love

Andhra rasam is popular for its exotic taste, the blend of pure spices with garlic makes all the difference.  On a rainy day, this will be  a good food with steaming hot rice , pickle and a few papads.

Among the various kinds of rasams I prepare, this has been the favourite of my son. Well, frankly, I do not know, how long he shall relish it, for all things should change.  Here, the whole spices are dry grinded with garlic and used as the rasam powder. Tamarind pulp is boiled and later the cooked dal is mixed to it with adequate amount of water. This post is part of blog hop team Culinary Hoppers with the theme “Regional Cuisine”. My earlier post  is here.
