If pineapple,lemon…..can be used for rasam,why not raw mango.As stated in my previous post related to raw mango
properties to be a body coolant,this recipe is to be included for summer compulsorily to combat heat.
Similar to the Aam Panna recipe( a drink made with boiled mango)the mango has to be boiled and mashed before
adding to the rasam.
The tanginess in the mango is more than enough for this rasam,so adding tamarind or lime is not needed.
This rasam can be served with hot steaming rice with your favourite accompaniments.
Do try this recipe and post in your comments.
