Rasam is a spicy soup cooked with tamarind juice, pepper, tomato, cumin, and other spices in south India. For increased nutrients, vegetables and steaming lentils are added. It's served with rice or as a drink after a meal. The antioxidant content of rasam's components, particularly tamarind, is high. Essential vitamins including thiamin, folic acid, vitamin A, vitamin C, niacin, and riboflavin are abundant in rasam. Some of these vitamins also function as antioxidants, which help the body stay healthy. Rasam can be given to babies as their first solid food because it is both easy to digest and appetising. For a baby who has recently been weaned off of his or her mother's milk, semi-solid food is the ideal option.
