Rasam is an inevitable menu in South Indian homes.There are many types of rasam made but Puli saru is a unique one because of its taste.Are you lazy to cook and want to really relax or have an unexpected guest this rasam comes handy.My mom used to make this in a giffy so we nick-named it as Maya Rasam.

Rasam is the most handy dish make it in a jiffy... My mom makes it the same way but she never uses methi... Adding methi should give a lotta flavor to the rasam, shall try your version...
