It’s very good for someone who is recovering from fever / cold and help in the speedy recovery. As it’s meant for a remedy to cold/fever and its supposed to be light, we don’t add Tuvar Dal and even Tomatoes in the Jeera Rasam. The pepper and cumin (Jeera) gives a very good flavour to the Rasam. Paruppu Thogayal
