Who invented Rasam?
The traditional preparation of rasam is made with tamarind pulp and black pepper- both abundantly and natively available in South India. According to some other historical sources, the origin of rasam is in Madurai and it dates back to the 16th century when the land was ruled by the Saurashtra rulers.
