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 posts.
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 chatting and then a lunch break then again lots of chatting…until we said bye…actually until the lift doors closed…. 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.
Serve hot with appalam, rice and the evergreen combo potato curry. The potato curry in the backdrop is my next post!Can anything beat his combo?
