    Rasam...

    Try this out... maybe many would know this already, but just in case... (also, I like this very much):

    Warm a little "Puli" with water, squeeze, filter and keep the "puli thannu" aside

    Take 1 table spoon of "kothamalli vedhai", 1 table spoon of "kadala paruppu", "1 table spoon of "molagu" and 3 or 4 "vara molaga"

    Fry the above with a little ghee...

    Make into a fine paste (add a little water if necessary)

    Mix this along with the "puli thannu" and heat it... add required salt (and "karuveppalai")

    Meanwhile take 1 to 2 table spoons of "jeeragam" and mash it in the mixie (add plenty of water if necessary)

    When the "puli thannu" has dried up a little, add the "jeera water" till your required quantity of rasam is met

    Cut a couple of garlic and mash them slightly, then add them to the rasam

    When it boils, remove from the flame... add "kothamalli" (and dont forget to add sesame seeds)...

    P.S. To suit individual tastes, vara molaga/salt/puli/molaga quantities could be varied...

    This rasam would be esp delicious when taken on a cloudy/chilly day...
