What do you have within you is known
Yet, it is so not known.
Amirta I have heard about
You, I have experienced.
Two days I try to do without you
And, the third day you make me crave for you.
You taste variedly on various occasions
But, none of them are anything below the mark.
How do you get that unique taste when cooked by mom?
How do you evolve into so many forms?
While with Lemon, you are sour
While with Neemflour, you turn bitter
While with Garlic, you give an aroma like no other
While your partnership with tomato tops the list
Oh Rasam! How do you manage to blend so well with all;
Yet, give us that uncommon flavour of yours.
Who would need exotic food whilst you are around?
Hot steamed rice,
A dollop of ghee,
And, loads of you, Rasam
makes up for a more than scrumptious meal.
Pray tell me who would need exotic food whilst you are around?
You make my day, oh Rasam.
