VEPAMPOO RASAM|TAMIL NEW YEAR RECIPE

Vepampoo raam (Neem flower rasam)is a must one in the Tamil new year recipe menu. My mom just add ghee roasted vepampoo in the usual tomato rasam but my mil makes a simple vepampoo rasam without any dal. In my in laws place we make Vepampoo rasam once in 2 weeks during weekends. After coming here, i never made as i didn’t find neem flowers here. Few weeks back, Raks shared with me a good amount of vepampoo (dried neem flowers) and i made this vepampoo rasam . So i am sharing the recipe of vepampoo rasam .

The rasam will not taste bitter, but if u bite the neem flowers it will give a slight bitter taste.

  19. When I visited Madras, I bought some from Ambika Stores. You have to wash them and then dry it. I brought a pound of it! Stick it in a ziplock bag and declare it as dried spices. My gateway was Chicago!
