Have been looking for a recipe to send over to Asha of Foodieshope (RCI-Karnataka) for at least the past week, but my search did not turn up any results, being North Indian ,here I was treading unknown territory!....but to think about it was I really???

I can rustle up several  South Indian dishes ...and thinking about it ,Rasam is one of those, it is my comfort food..... in a class of it's own, my panacea, can't get enough of it, all in all singularly spectacular! Hope it fits the bill Asha!

  • Onion- 1 medium sized, sliced
