Mysore rasam- A flavourful 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). It is very popular in the 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. Do check out my other interesting rasam
variations like kalyana rasam, pineapple rasam or my mor rasam recipe for a unique flavour.
