When it Rain's, I prefer to have hot rasam with steaming hot rice. It can be prepared fast, and there is no way of getting complaints on it from my hubby when served with appalam. Whenever i had fever, my mom comes with a bowl of this hot rasam sadham and feed's me with her hands. soon after getting 5 mouthfull of mom's rasam rice, i could feel refreshed. whats more you need than your mom's hand fed rasam sadham when you are ill. Yesterday it was my turn, to feed my little son, who got fever. i could see, how he turned active and fresh after having this rasam sadham with ghee. Mom's Rasam Sadham are always special to everyone. Isn't it?
