Nellikkāy / Gooseberry Rasam

I have made only pickles of Nellikkay. I wanted to make some other dish with nellikkay ,so tried out making rasam with it. The mild spice and tanginess adds to the taste of the rasam. It is always recommended to have rasam whenever you have a cold. Have nellikkay rasam which is high in Vitamin C.
