Paruppu rasam recipe | South Indian rasam recipe


Paruppu rasam recipe with video. Rasam is  a staple food in South Indian cuisine. We make different varieties of rasam in South India and the way we make the same rasam varies from house to house. Even we make rasam without rasam powder, rasam without tamarind too. Already i have posted few varieties of rasam in Jeyashri's kitchen, this paruppu rasam i recently tried at home, so wanted to share the recipe with you all. As it is mostly raining these days, i am making rasam almost 3-4 times in a week. This recipe of paruppu rasam doesn't call for sambar powder or rasam powder. And i can say it is a perfect Bachelor recipe.
