Mysore Rasam

Mysore rasam varies slightly from our regular Rasam. Mysore rasam tastes very yummy with freshly roasted and powdered spices. The aroma of pepper and cumin added with Coconut and Jagerry gives exotic taste. Hot Rasam Rice with any vegetable fry and Pappad makes a perfect Lunch. We make this Mysore Rasam for any special occasion or when we have guests. Mysore Rasam also can be served as soup in bowls.
