Tomato Rasam

This is a very simple rasam. I got this recipe from a cook book written by Jaya V Shenoy and made slight variations. This rasam comes to your rescue, when pressed with time.

  • Tomatoes- 2
  • Rasam powder- 2 tsp (I used MTR)
  • Garlic pods- 4-5
  • Coriander leaves/Cilantro- 5-6 sprigs
  • Red chilli- 1-2
  • Mustard seeds- 1 tsp
  • Oil- 1 Tbsp
  • Curry leaves- Few
  • Salt- To taste

Chop the tomatoes into small pieces. Put it in a container and add 2 cups of water to it. Smash the tomatoes roughly using hands. Then keep this mixture for heating. To this add crushed garlic. Let this cook for a while (say 10-15 minutes). Now the tomatoes will get cooked well (Add water if required). Now add rasam powder, salt and chopped cilantro. Let it boil for couple of minutes. Then turn off the heat.
For seasoning- First heat the oil. Then add mustard seeds. Once it starts spluttering, add the broken red chillies and curry leaves. Fry for few seconds. Add this to the rasam and mix well. Simple Tomato Rasam is ready!!

 Serve it hot with rice. Above measurement is for serving 2-3 people.
