"Rasam" - Indian Soup Recipe And It's Benefits!

I think tongue twisting the rasam is not necessary. Not at least to the Indians because rasam is triple well known as super good for health and super good with rice and side dishes. Also, don't just banjir/flood the rice with rasam, Drink up rasam for its goodness - extremely beneficial and made with pepper, cumin, garlic, onion and turmeric. rasam is the remedy for cold and runny nose.  Rasam I am sure is popular with other communities as well. For a start, make a trip to any Indian restaurant to taste rasam or start with this rasam. Made with instant rasam powder/podi, it is the recipe for the beginners or for the easy way to a pot of spicy tangy aromatic rasam.
