Hotel-style paruppu rasam recipe – Easy to make paruppu rasam recipe with the addition of garlic – Paruppu rasam with full video and step by step pictures.

Rasam is one of the most staple gravy in South Indian cuisine. We make many varieties of rasam in our home. A small difference in the ingredient makes a huge difference in the taste. We make rasam with garlic, without garlic, with or without tomato, and sometimes with or without dal too. We also make rasam with fruits like pineapple, watermelon, strawberry, orange, gooseberry, and lemon.

In olden days many simple rasam like, goddu rasam, milagu rasam are made, without tomatoes. We make paruppu rasam at home, which I have posted few years back in Jeyashri’s kitchen.

This parrupu rasam recipe, I learnt few weeks back from a friend, and we all loved the taste. It tasted similar to the rasam we have in hotel meals. I am not sure whether they make rasam in this way in the restaurants, but it tasted so similar to that.

Rasam is usually served with plain hot rice or served as soup too. Do give this a try and trust me, you will love the taste of this Paruppu rasam.
