I am a huge fan of Rasams. No south Indian meal is complete without it. There are different varieties of rasams and using rasam powder they can be prepared in a jiffy. I tried this Rasam powder recipe from Nalini's site almost a month ago but still couldn't post it. May be today is the time for it.
