Raw Mango Rasam/Mangai Rasam/Mango Rasam Recipe/How to make Mango Rasam Recipe/ Mago Charu/மாங்காய் ரசம் செய்வது எப்படி

I have never imagined making rasam with Raw Mango, but when I came across this recipe in a magazine, I surely wanted to give it a shot. Now that mango season has started, I tried out this mango rasam, it was just amazing. Mango Charu/Mango Rasam is tangy, yet spicy, flavourful and tasty. The original recipe did not call in for adding thuvar dal, but I have added it to make it even tastier. Do try out this Raw Mango Rasam and post your comments here.
