Orange Rasam (a Microwave Recipe)

U can try this Rasam the day U do Sambar.Tastes tangy spiked with spices.Differs little from the original Rasam in taste and flavor.No need to add tamarind pulp. Its a lot healthier than the Tomato Tamarind Rasam or Dhal Rasam since its a blend of Protein and VitC.This tasty Orange rasam can be prepared in 7-8 mins time.U can also drink this rasam as a Soup - filtering it - as an appetizer.Its good for all.U can try Pineapple Rasam this way.Its tasty too.

Orange Rasam - Rasam made with Orange juice and other rasam spices
