Mysore Rasam

Mysore Rasam became favourite after our recent trip to Mysore. Luckily we had a Nice Restaurant near the place where we stayed and happened to taste all the special dishes of the state. On lunch We loved Rasam very much. after coming home, i prepared Mysore Rasam, but hubby did'nt like it. Then I asked my Kannada Friend for the recipe, and she happily, beautifully narrated the recipe, which i cannot forget so easily. Thanks "A" for sharing your Mom's Special Mysore Rasam.
