Mango rasam and blog-bonding

I, for sure need accept the face that I've been several light years away from blogging! Upheavals in life just kept me submerged in uncertainty and fear. Now with the help of family and friends i am getting out of my worst nightmare that came true! Life without dad is something which i never thought of .But life has compelled me to eat ,sleep ,cook and take care of my family! So be it as it may!
This rasam was made from one of the sourest mangoes I've ever encountered with. Picked a few from my Munnar trip.The seller claimed that it grew in the forests out there.Considering the sourness i decided it was rasam. Sure enough turned out heavenly. A must try!
