With Pepper Chicken done , thought I should do this Rasam as well..This is a very very simple recipe and tastes as good too. Without much ado - here we go..


  • 2 Large Tomatoes Diced
  • 1 Medium sized Onion chopped
  • 1 Green Chilly Slit lengthwise
  • Half tsp Turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp Red chilli powder
  • Salt as appropriate
  • 21/2 cups water
  • 2 tsps Oil for seasoning
  • A quarter tsp of Mustard seeds
  • One pod Garlic crushed.
  • 3-4 Curry leaves.

Step1: In a pot,toss in all ingredients from 1 to 7 and let it boil .Once the tomatoes and onions have cooked ,take off from fire and let it cool.
Step 2: Remove the green chilli and blend the rest to a puree and pour out into a strainer to take away sediments if any.
Step 3: Now for the seasoning, heat oil, add mustard seeds, while they splutter add the crushed garlic pod and curry leaves to it. Let the garlic turn brown a little, pour it into the rasam.

Well, the Tomato Rasam now looks like this.........

Easy to make and the taste is not so tangy,not so spicy - yet goes very well with rice and a combination of veg or non veg dishes.
