as i mentioned earlier, the typical rasam is generally made with lentil or pre-made rasam spice mix. this would not only adds taste, flavour to the rasam but also thickness and consistency to the rasam. having said that in this recipe, i have not used both yet i have attained the desired consistency and also the taste. i have used freshly made spice masala with coriander, cumin, garlic and pepper which adds flavour, taste and consistency to it. moreover, the freshly grounded spice masala takes the rasam to next level in terms of freshness, taste and more importantly the end to end time in preparation.

furthermore, before wrapping up, some tips, suggestions, variations for the aromatic south indian rasam recipe. firstly, the rasam recipe is made without any pressure cooked lentil soup. this does not mean, you should not be adding it. you can easily experiment it by adding and use the same herb mix. secondly, in this recipe, i have already used pepper, which automatically adds spice to the rasam. hence you should be cautious while adding green chillies to the rasam. lastly, you can also serve this rasam as a soup and not just limit to rice. particularly, if you are down with cold or flu, this would act as a taste enhancer.
