For the letter L,I was clueless as there is no Tamil ingredients except Lavangam.One of my friend suggested to make Lehiyam.But some of the ingredients are not in stock in my pantry so changed to make something with lemon.Finalised to make lemon sevai with ready made rice noodles.Couple of days before,I boiled the water and added the rice noodles,covered it.As the noodles needs to remain in the hot water for 10 minutes.But I forgot to put off the flame,and left the kitchen,the noodles cooked mushy and ended up in making payasam.
At last landed in Lemon rasam,a simple comforting food.This is our family's favorite and make it often.Never thought of sharing it in blog and finally did it for today's post.
We have been following this recipe since years, as this rasam doesn't require tamarind it appears in our kitchen during the summer time.
For this specific rasam we don't use garlic and rasam powder.My mom uses pepper,cumin and sambar powder.Also the addition of green chillies makes this rasam more flavorful.Off to the recipe......
- The amount of lemon juice is personal preference,I used 2.5 tbs to get a nice taste..
- If you want to add garlic,crush 2 cloves of garlic and add it while the rasam is boiling.
- The lemon juice needs to be added after put off the flame.The lemon juice should not boil otherwise the rasam will be bitter.
- While serving the rasam mix it well and serve.
