mysore rasam

Mysore Rasam , Mysuru Rasam  is a well known lip smacking  rasam with freshly pounded ingredients . It makes a heavenly alternative to the usual bowl of daily rasam that we prepare with previously powdered rasam ingredinets . The taste is to be relished to believe . This is one of the most popular rasam in the country and so well known .  It is just as easy to prepare the Mysore rasam powder in advance and use it when ever desired but i prefer to make it fresh every time . And it is worth it .
