Orange Soup Rasam.

Yesterday I saw 2 oranges on the fruit basket,nobody wanted to eat it because had one early and found it sour,but I somehow wanted to use it . So here’s my invention. With a lot of apprehension,made an Orange soup rasam. To my surprise the end result was awesome. Had it with my family and by the end of the dinner the rasam bowl was empty. Drizzle some warm ghee on hot rice and have rasam sadam with papadam.( Don’t throw away the skin of the orange,scrape the white part and store the skin,there is a recipe coming tomorrow with the orange peel)!
