If you are wondering about what rasam is, then......Rasam, a traditional south Indian food, is a kind of broth packed with flavors and aromatic spices usually made with tamarind base, that warm you up and give immunity booster. This is very comforting. When you are sick or in good health, this is an amazing food that every south Indian would love! When we were kids, delicious, steaming bowl of rasam rice with a dollop of ghee used to be the food most wanted! The juicy, brothy, flavor filled rasam rice gives the most satisfaction! Even today this is most comforting!
Coming to fresh cider, well, fresh apple cider is pressed apple juice that is not filtered. In this recipe, I have used green tart apples and when ground with spices and simmered, tastes similar to mulled spider but definitely a spicy version, both in spices as well as heat.
My mom is an amazing cook and her rasam is to die for! She makes different varieties of rasam (and many other foods) and the aroma fills the entire home. She even used to make many addictive varieties of rasam at short notice. Inspired by her cooking, I am adding few more varieties in rasam series.
Extract the juice of tamarind using a cup of water. Add this to the ground apple mixture. Add salt, turmeric, and the remaining water. Mix to combine evrything.
