Today I have for you all an easy peasy flavorful ” Lemon Rasam / Nimbehannu Saaru ” a great dish to tickle your taste buds and light on your tummy. One of my all-time favourites which I have been relishing since childhood till date. Lemon Rasam is a very common household dish in South India and is known by various names in Karnataka like nimbehannu saaru / sappe saaru / kattu saaru etc. If someone is sick at home .. hot kattu saaru with hot rice .. tangy & spicy ..is so refreshing on the palate and is so comforting. Call it a rasam and empty it with a bowl of steaming hot rice or name it a drink and just gulp gulp gulp….
South Indian meals can never be complete without rasam. We make almost daily some or the other variety of rasam for our lunch. Lemon Rasam Recipe comes very handy when you are lazy to cook or running out of time or want to eat just something simple Ghar ka khana types or down with a cold. Thin, watery and tangy it really tastes Yum !!
There are many variations of lemon rasam one can make. With/without tomatoes, With/without crushed pepper, With/without coconut etc but whichever way you make the hero of the dish is lemon. And never skip ginger,hing, jeera and ghee .. without these ingredients the lemon rasam wouldn’t taste same. Usually, it’s made plain and no rasam powder is added. Also, I prefer making this rasam using moong dal only as it light on your tummy.
Do try this, lemon rasam recipe, I’m sure you l keep licking your fingers and make your plate clean…. So refreshing … Here you go …
