Watermelon Rasam recipe - Watermelon Indian style soup recipe - Rasam recipes - Lunch, Dinner recipes - Vegetarian Side Recipes

Summer around the corner. It is so hot outside. You can see all summer treats everywhere. Watermelon is everywhere. I tried this last season i however couldn't get the final picture. Wanted to post this at the beginning of the season. I get seedless watermelon so I don't have to strain if you get watermelon with seeds then remove the seeds before making juice Or make juice and strain it. My husband could not  find out what was in the rasam except the color. Nice red color really tempting.. I could  have this as soup also
