Lemon Rasam

Lemon Rasam is a simple and quick rasam requires less number of ingredients. It does not require tamarind paste. So, it must be a good option to try out if you get bored of regular tomato rasam. I got this recipe from google through someone’s blog and tried at home. It came out successful in my first attempt. I am sharing the recipe I tried at home
