Pineapple Rasam

Pineapple is my most favorite fruit and one of the many reasons why i like this fruit is there could be a variety of recipes you can make using this fruit both sweet and savory recipes. To name a few pineapple kesari, pineapple kulfi, pineapple rasam, pineapple pachadi, pineapple fried rice, pineapple upside down cake and the list goes on.

In today's recipe, i'm going to share the steps of making pineapple rasam. The taste is just so divine! yes it is! not only while relishing but also after drinking this soup/rasam the flavour sticks to your tongue and it just amazes me.

To experience this all by yourself my recommendation is not to have any hot beverage like coffee or tea right after having this rasam/soup as these beverages override the pineapple flavors from your taste buds. Do try this recipe and share your experience. Happy Cooking 😃😃😃!
