Garlic Rasam Recipe
Garlic Rasam is one of the very common rasam recipes(with no rasam powder) we often make especially for for those cold rainy days pairing it with rice, rasam, paruppu thogayal and apalam which makes the best comforting lunch  combo! One of the very few recipes I learnt while I started cooking was rasam but still it took almost a year to confidently post it here as I wanted to perfect myself first before I share it to you :) I have already posted paruppu rasam recipe long back, but promise to post more rasam recipes often.
