Sweet Corn & Coriander Rasam

Nothing can be comforting like having rasam rice with fryums or papads, i wont miss rasam for any cost. Actually  i can survive for many days with rasam. I love varieties in rasam and do make different trials with this wonderful food.I have bookmarked couple of dishes from many blogs, the list of my bookmarked recipes just goes on. Thank god i picked bookmarked recipes as theme for this week's blogging marathon, finally i could post three bookmarked recipes i have tried already which are sitting sadly in my draft.Obviously this sweet corn and coriander rasam is one among the bookmarked recipes i have tried long back from Divya's space. This rasam is definitely a different one with a superb flavour from coriander leaves along with mild sweetness from sweet corn kernels.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#43.

coriander rasam with sweet corn kernels

I prepared this rasam the day when the weather was too nasty, we had a very satisfyng meal with this very aromatic rasam served along with spicy potato fry. Seriously the colour of this dish itself will be very pleasing and one can have this fantastic comforting food without any fuss. This rasam stays prefect even for two more days when conserved properly in fridge as much as flavourful like the first day. Last but not least, this rasam goes for usual rasam powder, but however a  grounded spice mixture is used to make this fingerlicking rasam more flavourful and colourful.Sending this post to my own event CWS-Corn guest hosted by Anitha.
