4.5 stars from 2 ratings of takkali milagu rasam

Takkali Milagu Rasam (Fusion style)

Rasam from my grandma's kitchen was always tempted me after she passed away i Met Mr. A.S.Chandramouli my Husband's uncle who was staying with us and when first i took aroma of his rasam reminded me of my grandma and i was flatter it was simply awesome. I've learnt some great tips of Rasam, sambhar, vathal kozhambu from him. Sure certain hands cannot get that dish taste but still i've tried something interesting Rasam of his n my taste n so given the name of fusion .Serve this protein- and vitamin-packed rasam as an accompaniment to plain steamed rice or slurp it as soup. Tomatoes are bountiful of vitamin a, folic acid that helps boost immunity. This recipe is low in calories, Try it you'll love it.:)
