Cauliflower soup/rasam

Written by: 7aum Suvai

Cauliflower is low in fat and carbs but high in dietary fiber, folate, water, and vitamin C.Cauliflower soup or cauliflower rasam is my friend’s dad recipe. First time I tasted at his house with hot rice, it was fantastic. I have tried this recipe many times and it came out well every time.
