Veppam poo 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).

You can also check out other Tamil New Year’s Recipes here. Along with this healthy Neem Rasam, we have a tradition to make paruppu vadai, mango pachadi, Paruppu Payasam.

You can try in naatu marundhu kadai. generally we get it from neighbours who have neem trees. but now with lots of apartments we can find it rare. you can try temples they will surely have or idea of where we can have
