Easy rasam recipe
Here is an easy rasam recipe for bachelors using store bought rasam powder.This rasam can be made instantly without adding dal water.I guess most of the bachelors use store bought rasam powder or homemade rasam powder made by your mom.This recipe suits for both.Recently i bought a rasam powder from stores and tried it by following the instructions given in the packet.But i was not happy with the results.Yesterday i came across vahchef’s “Hotel Rasam Recipe” in Zeetelugu youtube videos while browsing some video recipes.I adapted his recipe and tried it using my store bought rasam powder.It came out really well.If u want to prepare a simple and yummy lunch or dinner after your tiresome job,this recipe gives u a helping hand.A bowl of rice with piping hot rasam drizzled with a tsp of ghee and papad as side dish is the most comfortable & quickie lunch for me.I am sure most of your choice would be the same.Try this recipe and let me know how it worked for youHappy.
