Pori Rasam/Instant Rasam

Pori Rasam:

Pori means literally tempering the ingredients in Tamil, that is the special in this rasam is to temper with proper ingredients, not to allow it to boil for long. The smell itself makes us feel hungry.

Rasam is mild, soothing for cold and cough also made every day for proper digestion, it can be served with rice or to drink hot as soup. In a traditional meal, it is preceded by a sambar rice course and is followed by curd rice. The only rasam with rice is suggested by doctors to have during fever such a good medicine harmless and easy to digest, pepper, cumin garlic, added in it reduces cough and cold. Rasam has a distinct taste in comparison to the sambar due to its own seasoning ingredients.

We have a variety of rasam recipe which tastes great, instant rasam is made without any tomatoes or dal boiled water. Can make in a minute, I always remember my brother when I prepare this instant Rasam, he used to say avasara rasam has its own special taste and aroma. This can be matched with any stir-fried vegetables or paruppu thuvayal.
