Kandathipli Rasam

Kandathipli Rasam

When we landed Chennai we were bit tired of journey and got cold. So my mom decided to cook kandathipli rasam which is known for curing body aches. It is also known for curing cough & cold. Arisi thipli is another herb which is used in this rasam which is used for curing cough & cold and it generates body heat hence must be used in minimum quantity.
