i am a huge fan of rasam recipes, particularly the udupi saaru recipe is my personal favourite. back in my hometown (udupi), we make rasam with just tamarind juice, jaggery, toor dal and most important one udupi saaru pudi spice mix. unlike in other rasam variants, where tomatoes take a significant role to derive the taste and flavour. the spice mix and tamarind juice take precedence in this recipe. as a matter of fact, to make this rasam, the tamarind juice is boiled thoroughly with jaggery chilli and salt. during this process, it discharges all its raw flavour and when mixed with rasam spice mix, it yields one of the best rasam recipes.
