Tomato Saaru / Soup - How ever u like to call it!
With winter being the season & we here having 8" of snow, Rasam was the perfect dish i could think of cooking! A perfect dish for all those colds & coughs associated with the season. So heres a simple rasam / soup - if u like to just drink it.....
Roma Tomatoe- 5
MTR Rasam Powder - 1 1/2 tsp
Garlic - 2
Oil - 1 tsp
Salt - to taste
Cilantro - for ganishing
1. Blanch the tomatoes in hot water til u see the skin of it ready to come off.
2. Peel of the skin & put it in a blender & blend it well.
3. Now transfer to a pan & add water ( I added 1 cup) - to bring to your desired consistency. Add MTR Rasam Powder, Salt & bring to a boil.
4. Season with finely chopped garlic roasted in oil, till slightly brown. Add in chopped cilantro leaves & serve hot!
We had it with rice, but you can even drink it like a soup.....your choice!
