On a lazy day, when i dont feel like cooking but still want to eat homemade food, i make this rasam. Its very simple recipe, but the taste is so good. I always feel that tasty food doesnt have to be complicated, even a recipe like this with very few ingredients can make your day. This rasam can be compared with the tomato soup, beacuse it has the same consistency but what makes it special is, it has that indian spice to it.
- 6 oz can of tomato paste- 1
- rasam powder- 1 1/2 tsp
- sugar- 1/2 tsp
- water- 3 1/2 cups
- few curry leaves
Mix the tomato paste in water and keep it a side. Now do the popu or tadka (1 tsp oil, few mustard seeds, 1 tsp jeera, 1 dry red chillie, pinch of hing and curry leaves). Add the tomato paste with water, rasam powder, salt and sugar to the popu. Boil the rasam in the medium low heat for about ten to fifteen minutes. By now the rasam should look some what like a thick liquid. Taste and reseason accordingly, with chopped cilantro on top.
This rasam can be eaten as soup also. But really goes well with rice and all you need is some potatoe chips on the side.
