It is cold and raining here a slurp of that wonderful rasam would do a world of good. I don't normally add ginger to rasam, I will surely give this a try.

Love rasam of any kind. Loved it more for its no dal and no tamarind recipe. I rechecked if I had missed reading tamarind in the ingredients. Will surely try this.
