I have used good quality of tomatoes here. I found this simple tomato rasam recipe best in cold.I was suffering from cold past few days i feel that rasam helps me to fight against cold.(It works for me atleast).
I recently made Rasam powder at home so i was excited to use that again.
While preparing rasam,
main thing you have to keep in mind is ” never boil rasam so much” once
it comes to boil and you see a foamy layer forming over it, just turn it
off and add a bunch of coriander leaves.And the Next thing is always keep the
rasam bowl of pan covered till you serve it. Because then the aroma can
escape. I just read these tips from the book so i am sharing with you.

I love this easy tomato rasam with plain rice. I adopted this rasam recipe veg recipes of india blog and i loved it.
