Rasam is a South Indian soup, traditionally prepared using tamarind juice as a base, with tomato, chili pepper, black pepper, cumin and other spices.
- Add all ingredients to a soup pot and simmer on low for one hour. If you have the time, cook it longer. The longer it cooks, the more mellow the overall flavor will be and the more the spices will meld. If it’s not cooked long enough it can tend to be too acidic.
- Garnish with fresh cilantro.
- Feel free to add some cooked lentils and serve over a rice of your choice!
