Thanks a lot chef for the wonderful rasam recipe.
Every time i make rasam it used to be too sour, but after seeing your video I made a wonderful rasam and most of all my husband loved it.
I learned many new recipe from you like the Tindora Fry (The best) , Verity of Rice , cutlet etc.

hi Sanjay,
I have seen a lot of video demos of your veg dishes. and finally i was interested to see how You make my favourite dish for rice which is Rasam. It was also equally good and easy to make. I am making rasam since last 8 years and in any kind of rasam inspite of doing alterations to make different kind of rasams (almost there are 7 kinds of rasams i make), I follow a standard process to make rasam, which is to add tamird juice first to the boiling tomato and other spices and finally when it is about to be done add the dhal water.

This suggestion I am making after i saw your demo for basic rasam, as I felt there should not be a basic mistake in your cooking of Rasam.

I have given very good comments about lot of your other dishes and I would like to make this small suggestion to have this correction included.

Thanks for all your other receipes and secrets of cooking. !!! I enjoy very much on your website.

Thanks, Vaishnavi
