such a lovely soup, nice and green and I see that it is quite light. I like my soups a little watery... but can I skip the Asefeotida ?? I'm not a fan..it wont affect too much i hope??

this Tomato Garlic soup (Thakkali poondu rasam) is just awesome sanghy... i have once tried rasam with rice - however, the spice factor was bit high and in that lemn juice was used instead of tomato. guess it would work well with this recipe too.. isnt it?
