Ye we can call this simply as onion rasam. We can mix this puli thanni in hot rice and delish. Or we can eat with idly too, just soak the idly in puli thanni and enjoy.
During my child hood , my mom used to make this for dinner along with hot rice. This rasam doesn’t need any special side dish. We can eat with simple thuvaiyal or vadagam or appalam(papad)
