orange rasam recipe
Orange rasam recipe is one of the interesting and tasty rasam varieties. I buy Kamala orange or mosambi for Raksha as she loves both. But we all consume it as a fruit more than just drinking its juice. So I never had a chance to try recipes using orange juice. But this time, I reserved an orange to try out this rasam recipe and share in my space. I made it in a simple way just like my usual Tamilnadu style rasam. It tasted so good. I couldn’t spot any difference in taste but I could smell a nice orange flavor. We all loved it. Friend do try this easy, yummy orange juice rasam. You will love it too !
