Onion Mint Rasam

"Onion Mint rasam" is a simple rasam recipe with onion flavor primarily infused in it. Preparation of this rasam is slightly different from the regular rasam as here we temper first and then boil the tamarind water and rasam powder. Addition of mint leaves & carom seeds adds a perfect touch to this rasam.
It has been raining here on & off for the past few days and one the favorite cold-weather comfort snack is potato chips. DIP Foods sent me a packet of baked potato chips. The chips were light and had very less spice and oil free. With 96% less oil and a similar reduction in fat, the product meets high expectations of consumers looking for a Lifecycle change.
To go with onion mint rasam, potato chips makes a perfect accompaniment along with DIP Foods Baked Potato Chips.
