Thakkali Rasam / Tomato Rasam

Tomato rasam / Thakkali rasam is one of the rasams we prepare often in our homes..I used MTR rasam powder in this recipe here..It also gives a beautiful color to this toamto rasam...Homemade rasam powders will also do fine...Do give a try to our home style of thakkali rasam and enjoy..

Urad dal1/2 tsp
Curry leaves 1 sprig

Chop tomatoes finely..Add lottle oil in a vessel and add tomatoes,salt, rasam powder and turmeric powder..Saute till tomatoes become mushy and then filter it with little water through a sieve..Filtering is optional, you can use as such too..

In another vessel, heat little oil and temper with mustard, urad dal, curry leaves,crushed garlic and dry red chillies..Add the filtered tomato puree and required water..Add salt if needed...Add hing too..
