GARLIC RASAM(POONDU RASAM) RECIPE

poondu rasam    
 I always make rasam  by adding toordal and without garlic. We call it tomato rasam/parupu rasam.  My mom makes the garlic rasam when we were running out of cold and cough and during rainy day nights. We all love to have with hot steamed rice and garlic rasam with simple papad only.
Here comes the recipe of  GARLIC RASAM. Check out my pineapple rasam recipe too.
