Today i have come up with a different tasty rasam. This rasam is so tasty and flavourful rasam. There are many types of rasams available. This rasam is easy to make and also simple yet delicious. I took this recipe from Vanitha magazine and modified according to my taste.

       I have not tasted this rasam any where but when i saw the recipe i love to try this with the mangoes which i bought from my home town. You can use any variety raw mango which are mature to make this rasam. I made this rasam with Neelam variety mango. Unlike normal rasam the only souring agent used in this rasam is mangoes.
