Rasam is a spicy soup made in south India using tamarind juice, pepper, tomato, cumin and other spices. Vegetables and steamed lentils are also added to it for extra nutrition. It is either eaten along with rice or drunk after a meal. Its distinct taste is sourness, contributed by the tamarind base. It is usually difficult to find a healthy dish that is also appetizing, but rasam is one of those dishes.
Rasam is backed with thiamin, folic acid, vitamin A, vitamin C and niacin along with minerals such as potassium, iron, calcium, zinc, selenium, copper and magnesium. So it’s not just a treat to your taste buds but should also be included in your diet for balanced nutrients.
