Nimmakaya Charu -- Lemon Rasam

I am here with one more edition of Blogging Marathon 13 th edition. In this edition I have chosen Rasam recipe s for  seven days in the first week. To days  my recipe is Lemon Rasam - Nimmakaya charu. This recipe is a variation to normal rasam  and very easy to make. In one way we can say this is an instent rasam. Again this recipe is from my mother she never use dal in her rasam  recipes except kattu rasam (kandi kattu) and rasam is less tangy and more spicy. Here is the recipe for Lemon Rasam - Nimmakaya charu
