to be honest, i am a big fan of rasam recipes and my weekend lunch is incomplete without a comforting rasam recipe. having said that i had a little or almost no knowledge about kalyana rasam recipe. as a matter of fact, i knew this dish plays a significant role in any tamil wedding. but i had a very little idea on how to make it. thanks to my tamil friend roopa, who was more than happy to share the recipe with me when i asked her. brahmin recipes are usually onion and garlic free for the feast. the speciality of brahmin wedding rasam is its spice mix which is roasted and blended freshly. as a variation and if you eat garlic, you can add garlic as it adds a lot of flavour and taste to it.

anyway, some tips, suggestions and variations for a perfect and flavoured kalyana rasam recipe. firstly, i would always recommend to make the rasam powder well ahead in advance and use it whenever you are planning to make this rasam. this not only saves time but also make it tastier when the powder is made in bulk. secondly, if you feel adding garlic is not an option and wish to keep it no onion no garlic recipe than you are more than welcome to skip it. lastly, in this recipe, i have used the combination of tamarind and tomatoes and achieved the sourness. but if you wish to make it without tamarind, you can skip the tamarind and double the tomatoes ingredient.
