Lemon Rasam - A sour soup made with lemon juice

As the name indicates a variety of rasam made with lemon juice. Lemon is substituted for tamarid juice to give the tangy / sour taste. Note that lemon juice has to be added at the end, if it is allowed to boil then the taste turns bitter. A very simple preparation, which needs no grinding and the ginger added, gives an unique taste to the soup. Usually lemon rasam is relatively mild, compared to other varieties of rasam. Adding more dal with ground pepper & cumin seeds can make a thicker spicy version of the rasam. Enjoy the rasam with rice and a spicy potato curry.
