Devasthana Saru 2

This is the second recipe of Devasthana Saru i.e temple rasam. I prepared this on Gowri puja and this time I tried the recipe from Nandini Akka’s blog. Temple rasam has a special aroma and the taste is too good. Nandini akka says in temples they don’t add hing for Naivedya saru( when they offer to God), but they add it  just before serving devotees. Though boiled tur dal is not added in this recipe I added boiled chana dal stock.
