Chicken rasam recipe, Chicken soup, Kozhi rasam

Chicken Rasam/ Chicken soup/ Kozhi rasam is a delicious and spicy chicken broth flavored with freshly ground spices and coriander leaves. A much needed South Indian style soup/ rasam that needs to be slurped during this cold season/ any rainy day to keep you warm. We are always reminded of bajji/ pakora/ vada during rainy season but commonly forget to relish such healthy and hot soup. This is 2 in 1 dish which can be slurped as soup or relished by pouring it over hot rice. Call it divine!! There many varieties of rasam that can be prepared like Moringa/ Drumstick leaves rasam, Pepper rasam, Mango rasam, Drumstick rasam, Pineapple rasam, Tomato rasam and so on and you shall witness few varieties coming in the blog this year hopefully. So starting my rasam series with this chicken rasam/ soup. For this kozhi rasam recipe I have used chicken with bones as it tastes great but you could try using boneless chicken as well. This kozhi rasam tastes great when served with these dishes TAWA CHICKEN FRY , NETHILI FISH FRY and PICHI POTTA CHICKEN. Also you can try making this rasam with nattu kozhi which tastes more delish and to mention this may not be the authentic way of preparing chicken rasam but surely a homestyle one. So do try it at home and let me know your feedback. Let’s get to the making of chicken soup !!
