Anu's Kitchen Rasam

Goddu saaru | Goddu Rasam

It has been raining for the past few days. Officially spring is here but still no signs of improvement in the weather. Thankfully there has been no snow fall. This yucky gloomy weather makes me sick. I have been taking soups these days to fight cold and cough. Amma used to prepare goddu saaru (rasam). With hot pepper and garlic, aroma of goddu saaru would make us feel cozy and comfortable. This recipe is good for indigestion too.
