ABOUT Amla (Gooseberry) Rasam RECIPE

Rasam with hot steamed rice and accompanied with some papad / chips is the best comfort food that anybody will vouch for. And if it is made with the super nutritious and healthy amla, then there is nothing like it. I am a total fan of rasam of any type. It is light, tangy and a little spicy, coming form the peppercorns.
