Palarasam / Pazharasam


Coming to this drink, “Palarasam”, hope all tamilians will be drooling after reading the name. This is one among the most common tamilian drink  and is found in every nook and corners along the streets of Tuticorin, south TamilNadu. The word “Pazham” is fruits and “Rasam” is juice, it’s nothing but the mixture of fruits, banana is the main ingredient here. This is drink is prepared with well ripen fruits, inorder to avoid them from getting rotten.

It’s an easy and simple drink, prepared by mashing all the ripen fruits together with your hands. Try out this drink and hereafter no wastage of fruits.

It’s Friday and I am taking to the Fiesta Friday #69 hosted by Angie@thenovicegarderner. Let us move on to the recipe…
