  • 1.5 - 2 tsp - Rasam powder
  • 1/2 tsp - Mustard Seeds

  • How to Make Tomato Puree Rasam:

    1. Blend the tomatoes to a smooth puree in a blender. Do not add any water while blending.
    2. Boil the tomato puree on stove for about 4-5 mins.
    3. Add the rasam powder and boil further for another 4-5 mins. Add water if you feel the puree is very thick.
    4. Add salt, jaggery and mix well.
    5. You can even add a couple of spoons of grated coconut and chopped cilantro.
    6. Since the tomato already has a sour taste, you need not add any tamarind.
    7. Temper with mustard seeds, jeera, hing and curry leaves.
    8. Serve hot with rice.
