Traditional rasam is mixed with mashed rice and is especially served for kids which helps indigestion. Add fewer chilies while serving kids. Tomato, garlic, curry leaves, cilantro, coriander & cumin seeds, tempering seeds, and red chilies are added in rasam. Can also add pepper to relieve from cold or cough. Best combination with aloo fry or Chicken Fry or pappad or chicken pakora.
