Egg Rasam | How To Make Egg Rasam

Hi dear friends am happy to introduce, a lovely person "Shafeeka" who has been a continuous support to me. She is a Non-blogger who has been my subscriber and mails me at times with lovely encouraging words that helps me to do better everyday. Here today she is going to share with us a wonderful rasam recipe. She has sent this recipe to participate in the "60 Days To Christmas" event conducted by Priya.R and me together. And am so glad to share her recipe with you. When I asked her whether I could publish her recipe she gladly accepted. Thank you Shafeeka. I did not have kari vadagam so I tried the rasam without it, but still it tasted so good, it was soothing and delectable and I wanted to publish it right away. It goes well with rice, try it and you will love it for sure. Thanks for sharing such a super comforting rasam dear. 

Check out my rasam recipes here!!

Here is my rasam picture I tried by following Shafeeka's recipe;

She has also not forgotten to appreciate me, this is really pushing me forward to do much more. Thank you so much Shafeeka!! 
Here is what she said;

And not to forget your everyday recipe updates pushed me to kitchen and inspired me to try few.Its all because of the photography done by you at every single step.Those clicks encouraged to give a try that things will turn out smoothly.So much perfection you  have!
