  11. Hi mahi ! grinding tur daal and chana daal for pudi are not neccessary for this, they are added just to give a thick consistency.
    Instead you can add extra tur daal itself.
    Even i add coconut at times as it gives a different taste!

  30. Today early in the morning, i saw ur rasam and decided to have it for lunch.I really loved the flavor of this rasam.It was quite different than the regular ones I make.I added the entire ground powder(as it was not mentioned how many tsp to use) and it tasted abit spicy for me.so went adding 1-1/2 cup of extra water.But the final product was sooo yummy...

  35. Hi Mahimaa, nice and spicy rasam. I just wanted to make a note on this that a few cloves(lavangam) are added along with the ingredients to be ground and hence the speciality of this rasam called as Mysore Rasam.
