How to cook meat for chicken rasam?

I used chicken leg pieces to prepare the rasam however you can also use any pieces like wings, breasts, etc. I suggest using bone pieces to bring up the real flavor. It is highly recommended to cook the meat in low flame to get real nutrients. Cooking on the high flame will break down the nutrients in any kind of food.
