Pineapple Rasam – Rasam Varieties

September 3, 2020 Rasam Varieties  No comments

Rasam is a comfort food at all times. This Pineapple Rasam is yet another flavourful and easy rasam variety. The sweetness and slight sourness of pineapple add a magical flavour to this rasam. When we go on a trip or whenever we miss home food, Rasam, Curd rice & potato fry is the default menu that we long for. 🙂 I had this pineapple rasam in mind since a long time, finally sharing it here. Do check my other rasam varieties too if u cant find pineapple. Recipe with video. Check out below.
