Mint Ginger Rasam

Hi Supermoms,

Rainy season is here. It is not only the season to enjoy hot vadas and pakoras but also to protect yourself and your family from seasonal allergies and viral infections. The best preventive medicine is of course, eating right. The adage 'Food is Medicine' is indeed true, especially consuming food that has healing and soothing properties. 

We all know the medicinal properties of ginger, black pepper, cumin seeds and mint leaves. I am going to share a rasam recipe that is truly soothing for your throat, refreshing and immunity building. 

You can enjoy this rasam along with hot rice or can just drink it as a soup.
