This Vitamin C rich Rasam is easy to prepare and a healthy variation to the usual rasam. In this rasam recipe, there is no tomato and tamarind, the sour taste is only from gooseberries.
Though we know the health properties of gooseberry, it is difficult to make my kids eat. So I always try to find a way to sneak amla / gooseberry into their diet and this is one of it.
