garlic rasam recipe with step by step photos. spicy, sour rasam tempered with garlic and spices.

sharing one more rasam recipe variety. i make rasam on a regular basis and in this rainy cold weather, i prepare rasam often. since rasam is good for cough and cold. i also make rasam on those days, when i want to make a quick, spicy and an easy dish with rice.

the recipe does not make use of readymade rasam powder and cooked dal (lentils). goes very well with steamed rice. you can also have plain as a soup.

with rasam, i usually serve steamed rice and a veggie roast or any veggie poriyal. but both steamed rice and rasam is such a comforting meal, that you may not need to have any side dish.
