In Araitha Rasam, we are going to make a freshly ground Rasam masala instead of using the ready made rasam powder. Freshly ground rasam masala gives a nice and fresh flavour to the rasam. Also here as we are grinding the masala freshly, we are not going add cooked dal finally. This araitha rasam goes well with vathakuzhambu, poricha kuzhambu or even for paruppu thugayal.
