Orange Rasam Recipe by Jiya Jesh · Updated on February 21, 2020 Curries/ Gravies| SoupOrange rasam recipe – a delicious and comforting South Indian rasam flavored with orange. This recipe has freshly ground spices and lentils with the goodness of fresh orange juice. Rasam is a traditional South Indian dish that can be served as a warm soup or eaten with steamed rice. While we use tamarind in plain rasam, this orange rasam has both orange juice and tomatoes added. This gives it a slightly sweet and tangy flavour while the freshly ground spices give it a spicy taste. A typical South Indian lunch usually has rice served with sambar or kuzhambu, then rasam and finally curd.The spices that we add in rasam helps in digestion. In this recipe, we do not use rasam powder and instead use fresh spices, which gives a nice aroma and flavor to the rasam. Freshly squeezed orange juice along with cooked lentils too are added to the rasam.
