NOTE: You can also fry dried neem flowers in ghee and mix it with hot rice alongwith salt. This helps in de-worming and upset stomach. It is also anti-viral.
Tamarind - a small lemon size
Salt - as per taste
Dried neem flowers - 3 tsp.
Ghee - 1 tsp.
Oil - 1 tsp.
Dry red chillies - 2
Hing - a pinch
Soak tamarind in water and extract about 3 cups of juice from it.
In a vessel, pour the tamarind extract, hing and salt and allow it to boil till it diffuses the raw smell.
In a pan, heat oil & ghee and fry the red chillies and veppampoo (neem flower) till it turns dark brown, but should not be burnt. Add this to the rasam. Close with a lid so that the aroma of the neemflower will be infused in the rasam. DO NOT BOIL IT AGAIN AFTER ADDING THE NEEMFLOWER ELSE IT WILL TURN BITTER.
Serve hot with rice.
