Wheat Grass Rasam

5 from 2 votes

We generally consume wheatgrass juice in empty stomach weekly once whenever they are available in the market as they contain huge amount of chlorophyll, which is an important blood builder.
This is one such grass which I can get easily in many shops in Singapore be it wet market or fair price. Wheatgrass juice combined with tamarind and cooked with tomatoes, rasam powder and finally tempered with spices gives this healthy wheatgrass rasam.
I choose wheatgrass mainly because of the chlorophyll which neutralizes toxins, controls blood sugar related problems and also helps to purify the liver. Since all of us don't like the taste of plain wheat grass juice, particularly kids, I add them in my dishes and rasam is one such dish where I add the juice.

I love to cook the most authentic way. Most of my recipes are cooked either in claypot or kalchatti / soapstone. They are extremely beneficial as they retain the nutrients. Before cooking a recipe in these vessels I do in-depth research and make sure it is doable in any modular kitchen.
