Rasam is never be bored. We have so many varieties of rasams. One such variety is mango rasam. Can’t wait to prepare fresh mango rasam this season. The rasam tastes awesome with hot steamed rice or it can be served as plain like an Indian soup too. Mango rasam is prepared with raw mango, grated coconut as main ingredients and tempered with tempering ingredients. Here I present a flavourful and tangy mango rasam to enjoy this season.
