Rasam means Essence. Since the essence of Toor Dhal alone is used, along with spices that are flavorful and contain medicinal properties, this “soup” or “sauce” is refreshing, tasty, flavorful and healthy. Apart from being used almost daily as part of a routine meal in South India, Rasam is widely used when someone is under the weather with a cold, upset stomach etc. It has a variety of other uses as a complement to other dishes too. Try this one at least once!
