Raw mango Rasam – Mangai rasam

After nearly 10 months I went for grocery shopping. I was feeling happy and at the same time different .Wearing mask and being cautious of not to touch everything has made my shopping not the same as before. Thank God for the situation getting better than the last 10 months.

I found some fresh raw mangoes while shopping last Friday. They were so attractive. I thought of some pickles out of it. Then I thought of making some other recipes with it so that I can post it in the blog. Then I had options like rasam, chammanthi(chutney), dal or sambar. As the climate is cold, I choose rasam as it could be the perfect one to go with this winter.

I made this rasam, beans stir fry and raw banana fry for lunch. Having this hot raw mango rasam with hot rice is so heavenly in taste at this climate.

Let’s see how to cook it.
