TOMATO RASAM

This is one famous South Indian style Rasam. In my house, we are making different types of Rasam weekly once for lunch and dinner. Lemon Rasam, Tomato Rasam and Green Chilli Rasam are the most common and popular Rasam. Rasam is a pure vegetarian dish and it can be made by using different methods. These types of dishes are very useful to improve digestion process. Earlier we were not making it in my house so I was not that much familiar with this taste. But when I shifted too hostel they were making it weekly once for dinner so I liked it very much. Then I tried to make it in my home and Aviyal is the super combination with this for lunch. Everyone needs to try this combination because it is really tasty. I made this dish with natural ingredients which are available in my home. This is very easy to make and contains Red colour and smell. It will be last for 2 days and its main ingredients are Garlic, Pepper Powder, Asafoetida Powder and Tamarind Pulp. Its taste is entirely different from other dishes and we will get a special feeling when use it. This is spicy and its consistency is loose. It has the mixed taste of sour and spice..
