The remedy to everything.
Over eating. Recovering from flu. Lost your appetite? Indigestion. Weird bitter taste feeling? Sore throat? Cough? Recuperating from any illness.Just finish your meal with rasam. A wholesome food. A comforting dish. Rasam doesn’t come in the curry category or dish category. It is just rasam. A treasure trove. A bowl of rasam can do wonders to the body and soul. Simply slurp it from a bowl or eat it with rice.
There is so much comfort in eating rasam. Rasam is flavorful. Rasam powder is for the pseudo cooks. I pity those who use them.
Adding rasam powder beats the whole purpose of making it.
Thalis have always fascinated me. Maybe the sheer variety of items. Or the abundance of eating a whole weeks home cooked food at one go. No one gets to eat fried rice and sambar and curd rice and sweet at one meal ever at home. Also does your mom ever put up dinner or lunch in tiny bowls? One for curry, one for sweet, one for curd?
The aftermath of washing those would begin, even before you start eating.
But without any doubt, the worth of any thali lies in the taste of the rasam. Almost everytime I compare it to the one made at home. If it tastes like home made rasam, it passes the test.
