Madhuri.Dixit's picture
Lemon & Tomato Rasam has a lovely taste. Lemon & Tomato Rasam gets its taste from vegetable mixed with rasam powder and chili. Lemon & Tomato Rasam is inspired by many food joints worldwide.
  Tomatoes 3
  Rasam powder/Sambhar powder 1 Tablespoon
  Salt 1 Tablespoon
  Mustard 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Gingelly oil 1 Tablespoon
  Green chili 1
  Lemon 1
  Coriander leaves 4 (A Few Strands)

Dice each tomato into 4 cubes.
Boil the tomatoes in 3 to 4 glasses of water.
Allow them to boil until the tomatoes soften, the skins give away and start dissolving.
Instead, you may even pressure cook them.
Next, mix rasam/sambhar powder and salt to the steaming tomatoes.
Allow the tomatoes to simmer for some more time.
Heat gingelly oil in a pan.
To it add the mustard seeds.
Once they start crackling, put in the chopped pieces of green chilli.
Then empty the crackled mustard chilli mixture over the boiling rasam.
Allow it to simmer for 5 more minutes.
Squeeze juice of both halves of the cut lemon into the steaming rasam.
Use the coriander leaves to garnish it.
Remove from heat.
Cover the pan with a lid so that the aroma is retained.
