Pineapple Rasam

Pineapple rasam is a special variety of rasam with distinct flavour and taste. It is a twist to the traditional one with littlebit of sourness and sweetness. Here in my place, I get a lot of pineapples at Rs 10 per fruit during the season. So I wanted to try something new with the pineapple. I remember having Pineapple rasam in many weddings. And I tried the same and it was yummy. K loved it and told me that he hasn’t tasted this before and it is delicious. Now everone in the family are in love with this rasam.
