Mysore rasam recipe

Mysore rasam recipe | Popular South Indian rasam recipe with freshly ground spices. Mysore rasam recipe in Tamil with full video and step-by-step pictures.

A flavourful, no onion no garlic rasam made with a unique blend of tomatoes and whole spices comprising of peppercorns and grated coconut. Mysore Rasam or Arachuvitta rasam, is a flavourful rasam made by grinding the whole spices (as the name Arachivitta meaning after grinding in Tamil, implies). This is very popular in Karnataka cuisine.

It gets its aroma because of the freshly made masala that goes into it. It pairs well with hot rice and can also be had as an appetizer/soup. I got this recipe from my sister and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The spices are similar to the ones used in arachuvitta sambar. We use pepper and cumin seeds in this Mysore rasam recipe.
