Tomato Rasam

Tomato Rasam / Tomato Charu / Spicy tomato Rasam with step-by-step pictures and detailed recipe. This Tomato Rasam is one of the most comforting foods made with tomatoes, onion, garlic, and spices. This is popularly served in the South region and it’s almost a daily affair in most of the houses. It is either served for lunch or dinner and also an appetizer.

However, the main purpose of serving rasam with lunch is to help food digest easily. It can be either consumed by mixing it with rice or as Rasam Wadas. . Rasam rice is also suitable for kids as it is mildly spiced and easily digested.

Spicy Rasam

For making this tomato rasam spicy, add more chilies and peppercorns in this recipe. Also, increase the number of tomatoes accordingly. I have not used any rasam powder in this recipe. Only freshly ground onion, garlic, chili, and spices paste. It tastes so good and flavourful.

Tadka of Rasam

Tadka plays a very key role in the taste of rasam. In this recipe, I have used ghee for tadka that lends a very good taste to it. If you are Vegan, you can do the tadka in coconut oil as well. Key ingredients for tadka are curry leaves and asafoetida / hing. You can add tadka even just before serving rasam.
