Rasam is a spicy South Indian Soup which is prepared in different varieties. This Ginger Rasam is one such variety, which is used for sore throat, cold or fever. I used to prepare either this rasam or Pepper Rasam when any body have cold in our family. Ginger has so many medicinal values and my grandmom used to prepare inji kashayam during my childhood days. This ginger rasam preparation also has so many variations. I followed a simple recipe for this.
How to make Ginger Rasam
Cumin seeds - a pinch (optional)
Lemon juice - 1 tsp (optional)
1. Adding lemon juice is purely optional.
2. If you need more spicy, add the dry red chillies.
3. The ginger and pepper are very good for cold and fever, so i added both in this rasam. But my grandma, used to prepare only with ginger. So you can prepare this rasam without adding the pepper also.
