Rasam recipes

Yes Blueberry it is again !! All the blueberry picking done made me make so many blueberry dishes for past weeks. I made Blueberry peda which i already shared  in my previous post , Then I made blueberry popsicle but unfortunately didn't happen to click as my daughter wanted to have it and I felt sorry for my blog , let see next time I make I have hide and click few so that I can blog. Now Coming to the recipe which I made with , of course blueberry :). The blueberries we picked from the farm were little tangy side so I thought of making rasam out of it.. I love rasam with potato fry, they bring out lot of nostalgic memory from childhood. As a child I used to hate rasam rice like anything but look at me now I love having rasam.. Some body said it right as you grow your taste changes. My mom had to make as eat rasam rice by making potato fry with it as side ,as we ( me n bro) loved eating  potato fry.. We used to do some funny stuffs, you will laugh I tell you. We used to keep the potato fry a side gaze it all time while eating rasam and not used potato fry as a side .. Once all the rasam rice is done, washed our hands, sat down near the potato and indulged it slowly. It was like a heaven, my bro used to finish the fries fast and then lift my potato fries from my plate too ha ha :P That was fun reviving the memories..

Blueberry recipes

Blueberry rasam is a very delicious and will taste like a rasam with blueberry flavor in it.. My blueberry were farm fresh so they were little tangy, am sure you can use the store bought once to get the "Khatta Meetha" taste. In that case you can skip the jaggery depending on blueberries taste.In our India trip we went for a vacation to Chikmagalur and there I happen to eat Udipi style meals  in which the rasam was made with kokum and not tamarind. So I tried to match the color of blueberry with kokum, and the taste even was good. Not so happy with the pictures, pardon me am still trying to find the best light in our new  place. Here is a innovative and yummy berry rasam for you today ...
