Lemon Rasam Recipe | Lemon Dal Rasam | Nimbe Saaru

Hi Folks, I'm back with another interesting rasam variety, "Lemon Rasam | Lemon Dal Rasam | Nimbu Rasam | Elumichai Rasam". Lemon Rasam is quite different from the usual rasam, as lemon is used instead of tamarind which makes the rasam as delicious as a mild thin digestible soup. It is quite easy and simple to prepare this tangy lemon rasam. It can be consumed as a soup or eaten with rice and side dishes like Potato fry, Carrot Beans Stir Fry.

I have been learning some interesting and traditional recipes from my mother-in-law. When she said we will make lemon rasam for lunch, I was quite amazed as the lemon rasam was new to me and I have never heard or tasted it before.

Lemon rasam is simple and easy to prepare. I was eagerly waiting to taste the hot and flavorful lemon rasam. When I …
