    • Adding Salt in the Last step and adding Jaggery in the last stage is the best trick to make a good rasam..
    • If you wish to Have more spicy version then add 1/2 tsp of rasam powder along with the Turmeric powder. 
    • Original recipe suggest to roast the tomato, garlic and Red chilli in Direct flame, i altered to my convenience..
