Strawberry Rasam Recipe / No Tamarind Rasam

strawberry rasam recipe

Have you heard about strawberry rasam ? I recently learnt this strawberry rasam recipe from a friend of mine. Rasam is a spicy south Indian tomato soup using tamarind juice, but in this rasam recipe, no tamarind is added, I prepared it with tomato, strawberry and rasam powder. I really like the taste and flavor of this rasam. Try to include rasam in your everyday meal as they are good for digestion and it cures cough and fever.  No Tamarind Rasam can be served with potato fry or Yam fry.
