Rasam Recipe – ഈസ്റ്റേൺ രസം – Using Eastern Rasam Powder
Rasam is a South Indian soup, traditionally prepared using tamarind juice as a base, with the addition of tomato, chilis, pepper, cumin and other spices as seasonings. It is eaten with rice or separately as a spicy soup. It is either eaten along with rice or drunk after a meal. Its distinct taste is sourness, contributed by the tamarind base.
The ingredients in rasam, especially tamarind are rich in antioxidants. Thus it protects the body against attack of free radicals. The skin remains young, supple, and healthy. Rasam plays the primary role of promoting digestion. Its black pepper content ensures that the stomach is signaled to produce more acid. This helps digest food, such as protects better, and prevents flatulence, indigestion, gas, constipation, acidity and diarrhea. Being a fairly good source of minerals, rasam is an ideal food for people to include in a balanced diet. Potassium, iron, calcium, zinc, selenium, copper and magnesium are the minerals provided by serving of this delicious soup.
