Rasam for the Soul

Forget chicken soup!  When it's chilly outside and I want a comforting bowl of brothy soup, I turn to Rasam.  Sometimes I follow a recipe and sometimes I just wing it, but it never fails me.  Spicy, savory, and sour, this soup is bursting with flavor and feels like it could kill any cold that might be trying to move in.

I've tried Nupur's Ginger Lemon Rasam before and LOVED IT.  I tried Vaishali's Screaming Hot Garlic and Lemon Rasam and LOVED IT.  Now I've also tried Latha's Lemon Rasam, or at least pretty close to her recipe.  I used little red lentils instead of toor dal because that's what I had and they cook up super fast.  And I added some green onions and ginger, too.  
Guess what...I LOVED this one, too!

For those who are participating in Vegan MoFo: Yes, I'll do another Vegan MoFo survey.  If you haven't done last year's, go ahead and take the survey.  And if you missed survey #2, go ahead and do that one, too.  It's fun and makes for a quick post!  Look for a third survey this weekend!
