There are so many rasam varieties with every house having its own creation. Am not sure if this recipe is common only to our family. But I have never had this outside of my house. I love this especially when my dad makes it. Whenever mom is sick, which is rare, dad cooks. He does, just two things - this rasam and potato podimas. Even though it seems such a simple dish, for me, its a treat.
It is very similar to the regular rasam except that instead of adding cooked toor dal, in this recipe we add the toor dal directly. It remains whole and is tender to bite.
