tomato rasam recipe | how to make tomato saaru, easy tomato rasam recipe with step by step photos and video recipe. 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 at least).

I recently made Rasam powder at home so I was excited to use that again.

While preparing rasam, the 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.

To prepare rasam, all you need to first is, boil your lentils and keep aside. after that just finely chop your tomatoes and you are all set. I am using fresh grated tomatoes here but if you like tomato chunks then please use finely chop tomatoes only.
