  44. If you want, you can saute, but we grind as such. If we balance the tamarind, spiciness accordingly, now raw smell will be there.

  47. Hi Raks,
    I am planning to try this recipe, but one question in my mind so thought of clarify that before getting started. Why do we add jaggery to this dish? When I was in Bangalore my cook initially used to add jaggery to rasam, sambar / kootu anything that she makes and it used to give a sweet taste at the end which hated so we requested her not to add it. So I am afraid if I add jaggery to this it might taste sweet. Please help clarify. Thanks :)

    1. I too dont like adding jaggery that much, which changes the taste and gives a sweet taste, but this is so very little for this that will just smooth all the sharp tastes of tamarind and chilly. So as long as u add it less, it will be nice
