Rasam is a flavorful, tangy, earthy and spicy soup made with tamarind, lentil and rasam powder. This easy rasam recipe has tons of health benefits plus it is a perfect accompaniment to rice and papad. Yes, in most of the Indian restaurants you usually get this served with papad. Tastes absolutely fantastic!
The Rasam powder that I have used here can be made in advance and stored for a month. You can buy readymade rasam powder from the grocery store to make things simpler, but there is no comparison of a freshly homemade one.
Health Benefits Of Drinking Rasam
Rasam drink is best for digestion, thereby preventing diarrhoea, constipation and boost immunity. Tamarind is the star ingredient of the recipe, which makes the drink really enjoyable and tangy in taste.
This drink is rich in various essential vitamins such as thiamin, folic acid, vitamin A, vitamin C, and niacin. These vitamins are rich in antioxidants which helps in keeping our body fresh and healthy.
