Balu's father Valliyottu Thirumeni is a sought-after chef who is known for his traditional sadya. After securing an MBA, Balu is not keen on taking up his father's profession.

For anyone who is deeply fond of cooking traditional Kerala feast and feeding guests, Rasam is a delight though food is not the film's hero. It acts as the prime ingredient in connecting the story's characters and makes the episodes delectable. Rasam is the story of a youngster who discovers his best skills through a series of run-of-the-mill events.
Valliyottu Thirumeni (Nedumudi Venu) is a renowned dehannakkaran (the one who prepares feast for weddings). His son Balu (Indrajith) wishes to carve out a different career though he is not sure what suits him best. Actor Mohanlal visits his house to invite Thirumeni to Doha so that he can supervise his friend's daughter's wedding feast. Bewitched by the prospects of befriending Mohanlal and going abroad, Balu agrees and the visit changes the course of his life.
is no Salt n Pepper food play. Of course, a few sequences make you want to check out the now-fading practices of traditional Hindu wedding catering or crave for a sadya.
