Here is a tongue-tickling version of the popular South Indian delicacy rasam, made with kokum. The tanginess of kokum and the spiciness of dry chilli flakes together give this Kokum Saar an invigorating flavour.

Ingredients like onion, green chillies and garlic add to the pungency, and you are sure to feel the heat on your palate when you sip on this rasam.

Despite being spicy, the presence of kokum has a cooling effect on your stomach. You can serve this as a soup, an accompaniment or as a main course mixed with plain rice .
