Raw Mango Rasam | Maavinkay Saaru

Raw mango rasam with step by step photos.A typical south Indian meal always comprises of a rasam variety and it is my comfort food too. I am always happy to eat a simple meal of rice with a vegetable fry and rasam and would not complain about the other missing varietes as in a typical south Indian thali.My most favorite rasam varieties are Karnataka style Bele Saaru, Holige Saaru and Tomato Rasam but there are few other varieties like mint rasam,pacchi pulusu, pepper rasam, mango rasam, tomato dal rasam which I thoroughly enjoy too.

Preparing a good rasam is again an art, not everyone can prepare a well balanced rasam which makes a lip smacking meal when mixed with hot rice and paired with fryums.I do not like very thin rasam which is flavorless, the rasam should be of right consistency and even though it is thin it should not lack the flavors and should be perfectly balanced in taste.My FIL is a big fan of my rasam varieties, he always get excited the moment he sees a rasam on our lunch table.A simple rasam rice is always a comfort meal for south Indians like how a dal chawal is a comfort food for north Indians.
