This post is for Blogging Marathon 46 under the theme "Lemon Recipes". Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM# 46 here.
This is one of the dish that is either a hit or a miss. Some people love it dearly and some loathe it, just like our family, the woman loves and the man hates it . Those who dislike quote only one reason "there is no special taste in this". Ironically the rest love it for the same reason - its unique flavour and aroma. A simple tangy liquid that gives a warmth and screams comfort food.
There are so many varieties of rasam. In all recipes, the basic liquid is tomato and or tamarind water flavoured with other flavouring ingredients. Based on that we have so many types. Garlic rasam, jeera rasam, some speciality like mysore rasam and pine apple rasam. Today's post is Lemon Rasam as lemon is the main ingredient of this week's BM.
Unlike the regular rasam, rasam powder is not the main spice ingredient. Green chilly and pepper contribute to the heat level. So add less of rasam powder and increase the other two if you want a more spicier rasam.
