Tomato Rasam..hmm yummy goes good with plain rice and this rasam can be taken as it is like a nice home made Tomato Soup.Today when I was going through Gayathri's blog I saw this rasam and I remembered my mom's tomato rasam and made it for todays lunch.I made it with little variations.
Tomato:3 medium sized
Cumin Seeds:1/2 spn
Urad Dal:1/2 spn
Mustard Seeds:3/4 spn
Curry Leaves:8-10
Garlic:3-4(peeled n crushed)
Mint:1.5 spn(Finely chopped)
Red Chillies:3
Salt:Acc to Taste
Red chilli powder:1spn
Oil:2 spn
Hinge:A pinch

1.Wash and make slits on tomato and cook for 5 mins in microwave.Allow it to cool,then remove the skin and mash the tomatoes and put aside.
2.In a pan add oil,when hot add cumin seeds and when splatters add mustard seed, urad dal,hinge,curry leaves, red chillies,chopped mint,salt stir well and fry till the raw flavor of garlic is removed .
3.Now add the mashed tomato paste,mix well and add water to make it into the desired consistency.Check for the seasonings and add any if needed.
4.Boil it well and serve it hot with white rice or have it as it like a soup.
