TOMATO RASAM RECIPE | THAKKALI RASAM - STEP BY STEP

TOMATO RASAM - WITH GARLIC


Tomato Rasam - A spicy soup with tamarind , tomatoes and garlic. In traditional South Indian Homes ,especially in Tamil Nadu, rasam is prepared almost everyday, as it helps in digestion. Its is served along with rice.


Preparation Time : 5 mins.
Cooking Time : 10 mins.
Serves : 4

For this recipe you need

Tamarind - Gooseberry sized ( soaked in water)
2 well ripened tomatoes,medium sized
4 cloves garlic, peeled and bruised
1/2 tsp. of turmeric powder
A pinch of asafoetida
Handful of fresh corinader leaves, for garnishing
Salt

For tempering

1 tsp. of  mustard seeds
1/2 tsp. of fenugreek seeds
A sprig of curry leaves
2 dried red chillies
Oil/Ghee

Preparation

Soak the tamarind in water and dilute with 5 cups of water, strain the tamarind extract in a heavy bottomed saucepan.


Slice and add two ripened tomatoes and smash it using your hands.


Add the turmeric powder and rasam powder.


Add asafoetida along with garlic and salt .Mix it well.


Keep this heavy bottomed sauce pan on stove and switch on the flame, bring it to one boil and finally garnish with fresh coriander leaves.Cover the pan and keep it aside.


Heat oil/ghee in a pan, add mustard seeds when they crackle, add the fenugreek seeds, followed by sprig leaves and red chillies . Saute it for a min. Finally temper the rasam with this seasoning and serve it hot.


Tomato Rasam with Garlic is ready to be served.........................


Serve this delicious tomato rasam with rice and enjoy :)

Note:

Tempering in Ghee, enhances the taste of the rasam.

Make sure you use well ripened tomatoes for preparing this rasam.

Don't overboil the rasam, that will completely spoil the fresh flavor of this dish. when it starts boiling ,switch off the flame,add coriander leaves and close the pan. 

Sometimes along with garlic, I also add a small piece of ginger,which is really comforting for sore throats or cold.
