Veppampoo Rasam(Neem flower Rasam) is a delicious bitter rasam which we mainly prepare for Tamil New Year. This is an exclusive Tamilian recipe. Neem is extensively used in Indian Ayurvedic/ unani medicine. If such a wonderful flower can be used to make a tastier rasam then what could be better ever? Neem flower is very good for curing intestinal worms. We can get neem flower in ayurvedic shops (Naattu Marundhu Kadai).
