Inji Rasam | Ginger Rasam Recipe | Gluten Free Recipe

Inji Rasam | Ginger Rasam Recipe

Hi Supermoms,

Rasam is the delicious , healthy South Indian Soup that also acts as a digestive. It is served mid-course during our lunch. Though tomato rasam is the most popular of all rasam recipes, there are so many variations that I make at home. 

Ginger lowers blood sugar levels, relieves nausea and is used as a medicine to soothe throat irritation and cold . It also reduces  muscle pain and soreness. 

I personally love to use ginger in my tea or make this rasam. It is so soothing for the throat .
