How to Make Traditional Tomato Rasam

  • Take a saucepan and add diced tomatoes with 1 cup of water.
  • Add turmeric powder.
  • Start blanching tomatoes for 3 mins on medium flame or until they become soft and mushy.
  • Once they have cooled, mash tomatoes with your hands.
  • Add 2 more cups of water, boiled dal with water, tamarind water, salt, coriander, curry leaves with stems, slightly crushed garlic cloves and 1.5 green chillies (slit).
  • Keep watching carefully. Once the mixture boils, immediately switch off the flame and add toasted cumin and black pepper powder (coarsely ground). Check the salt.
  • Now heat a pan, add oil to it, then add mustard seeds.
  • Once they splutter, add asafoetida and remaining green chillies to it, then add to rasam.
  • Serve piping hot rasam with steamed rice.
