Pineapple Rasam Recipe is quite different to the regular rasam recipes that we make.It was early this year I tried this rasam from ammas cookbook and instantly fell for the taste…..If you like pineapple flavour then this rasam is a treat for you.
I was not satisfied with the clicks last time I clicked them so was waiting for another chance to make this rasam and click it again….and finally I did few weeks back and here I am finally with this post.It is sure a challenging task for me to click dosas and rasams….the browning in dosas and the froth in rasams never satisfies me in my clicks so its mostly reclicks…grrrrr Its high time I learn from my mistakes and carry forward to get it right next time in the first attempt itself.
We enjoyed pineapple rasam with hot steamed rice and vadams….quite a comforting meal!!
