TOMATO RASAM



South Indian meal is incomplete without rasam. There are many varieties of this with a variation of flavours like ginger, tomato, garlic, pineapple etc etc.. I just love to drink it like a soup too. 

Ingredients:
Tomatoes: 5 large
Salt: to taste
Garlic: 4 pods
Turmeric: a pinch
Red Chilli powder: 1 tsp
Black Pepper: 1/2 tsp
Tamarind paste: 1 tsp
Coriander leaves: 1 tbsp

Tempering:
Mustard seeds: 1/2 tsp
Cumin Seeds: 1/2 tsp
Dry red chilli: 3
Curry leaves: 1 sprig
Rasam Powder: 2 tsp [for rasam powder recipe click - HERE]



Method:1. Pressure cook tomatoes in 1 cup water for 1 whistle. Remove the skin and blend the tomatoes coarsely.
2. Heat oil in a pan, and add all the tempering items. Then add crushed garlic and when it turn brown, add the pureed tomatoes and mix well. Add about 3 cups of water to this.
3. Add salt, black pepper, turmeric, rasam powder and coriander leaves.
