MYSORE-RASAM-RECIPE
     I have only tried once mysore rasam from a cookbook when I started learning cooking. And it came out terrible. I thought that is how that rasam tastes. When ever I eat out in restaurants and have rasam with coconut, I always liked it and wondered what the recipe could be. But after few years only I realised its mysore rasam and it is supposed to taste great! When Jeyashri posted her Mysore rasam recipe, I immediately told her she has to make it for me when ever I go for lunch to her home. Well I have few recipes like that, I tell her she has to make for me and got lucky to taste too. I know she is a great cook, so I never miss chance to take advantage of a friend who is a great cook / also she being a food blogger, its very easy to demand her the recipes as she postsTongue.
     So when we planned,planned planned and at last met for lunch at my home, we had a mini potluck. Yeah, you are right, potluck for 3 of us – me, Jey and Nags. I made arachuvitta sambar(with avarakkai), medhu vadai and carrot beans poriyal. Jey bought this mysore rasam. Nags bought eggless  lemony cake with chocolate frosting which me and Aj loved a lot. So we had a great time with lots of chattingChatterbox and then a lunch break then again lots of chatting…until we said bye…actually until the lift doors closed…Whistling. And coming to the rasam she bought, it was so so flavourful and I decided to try that myself soon. Tried it and came out very well. Now I can make it very often too. I dint made any major changes but only a bit in method here and there to my convenience.
