Rassam(Tomato and dal Soup):

Rasam is one of the most important dishes of south Indian cuisine. This light, tangy and spicy south Indian dish is usually served as a main dish with rice and vegetable curry. My favorite way of serving it is in cups, like a soup, Perfectly warming for a cold day!



Lemon Rice:

Lemon rice is a delicious south Indian dish. Lemon juice gives a very refreshing and tangy flavor to the rice. Best to carry in the lunch box or for a picnic!!
