Charu | Rasam | Neella charu | How to Make Charu

Charu | Rasam | Neella charu - There are some recipes that are done in a blink. This Andhra Style Watery Rasam is one such recipe. Tasty while you eat and easy on the tummy when you are done, that is this Watery Rasam.

Just as the name suggests, this Watery Rasam has nothing special except seasonings. All you need to do is boil all the ingredients for Rasam together and then add the seasonings.

But if you have tasted this Rasam just once, you would want to make it every day. It tastes great with Potato, Banana fries and with Non-veg. It even helps digestion after eating heavy non veg food.

I have seen this Rasam in Rayalaseema of AP and in the Palnadu areas of Guntur. It tastes great with idli too. And when we fall sick in our house, they give this Rasam in the diet, as it enhances appetite and aids digestion.

Try this: Ajwain Rasam and Pepper Rasam

Please follow these tips whenever you make Rasam

  1. Rasam is a simple recipe but the ingredients should be in the right proportion. Only then it becomes tasty.

  2. The ingredients need to be thoroughly boiled in thin Tamarind Water. Only then will the Water take the flavours. Or it just tastes as if you have added seasoning to hot water. Do take a taste while it is still boiling

  3. If you like, you can add Garlic to the seasoning, or crush them and use. I have not used them.
