5 Parrupu Rasam

Rasam means "juice". It can refer to any juice, but in South Indian households rasam commonly refers to soup prepared with sweet-sour stock made from tamarind, along with tomato and lentil, added spices and garnish. Rasam in Tamil and Malayalam, saaru in Kannada, or chaaru in Telugu means "essence" and, by extension, "juice" or "soup".


It is eaten with rice or consumed as a spicy soup. In a traditional South Indian meal, it can be part of a course that includes sambar rice and curd rice. Rasam has a distinct taste in comparison to the sambar due to its own seasoning ingredients and is fluid in consistency.


Here I have used 5 lentils in this rasam. Hence the name.
