Tomato Rasam

IMG_0144 - Copy

On tiring days one desires to eat the simplest of food. My definition of a simple dinner is steamed rice topped with tomato rasam. Rasam is a traditional South Indian soup which is sour and watery.

My innovative approach to it:

  • Submerge cassia or cinnamon stick in hot oil, followed by finely chopped tomatoes. (You have to be generous with the no. of tomatoes.)
  • Complement in green chillies, crushed ginger and garlic, turmeric powder and salt.
  • Allow the tomato pieces to melt.
  • Pour warm water over the puree. Add-on additional flavour by enriching it with chicken or vegetable stock.

HAPPY EATING! (It is tangy … enjoy)
