ABOUT Nimmakaya Charu- Lemon Rasam RECIPE

This recipe is a variation to normal rasam and very easy to make. In one way we can say this is an instant rasam recipe. Again this recipe is my mother's as she never uses dal in her rasam recipes, except the kattu rasam (kandi kattu) in which the rasam is less tangy and more spicy.
