Andhra Style Pachi Pulusu Recipe (Raw Tamarind Rasam Recipe) is a different way of creating a rasam that has been followed by the people from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. This rasam is not heated and rather prepared directly with squeezed tamarind water, sliced onions, roasted green chilli, fresh coriander leaves. The rasam is a specialty in those places and it is made very spicy, and thin. Sometimes when there is a huge production of raw mango during the summer, the tamarind pulp is replaced by the stewed raw mango.
