Beetroot Rasam | How to make Beetroot Rasam at Home | Gluten Free Recipe

Hi Supermoms,

The South Indian Soup ' Rasam' needs no introduction. It is a part of our every day meal. 'Ras' means juice . There are so many different varieties of rasam that you can make at home. It is so healthy , refreshing and filled with digestive spices.  A South Indian Meal is incomplete without rasam.

I have earlier shared so many rasam recipes with you all. Today, I am going to share another interesting, tasty and easy rasam recipe .

I had boiled beetroot to make  'Beetroot poriyal/stirfry' for lunch and used up the stock/water to make this rasam. You can try this rasam next time you are cooking beetroot. 

A flavourful and colourful rasam too.
