Growing up in a Tamil-Brahman Family, the only soup we tasted was amma’s Tomato rasam, ohhh!! what a flavor and aroma it still has!!! So, me too followed the same tradition of making the humble rasam or the Osaman as the soup. But then recently for the tried n tasted announced by priya, i tried Carrot Soup from Sharmi’s Space, it came out so well, now i make this very often, but in my issshhhtyle!!!!
