Tomato Rasam

I was not knowing what rasam to make today and ended up taking the minimalistic approach making this simple tomato rasam.
Tomato - 1
Rasam Powder - 1 tbsp
Pepper Powder - 1 tsp
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Corainder leaves - a little
Salt to taste
Ghee for seasoning

Blanch tomatoes, peel their skin and mash it. Add two cups of water and mix well.
In a pan, add the tomatoes, rasam powder and salt and allow to boil for 10 minutes.
Once the raw smell is gone, add some water. Cook on low heat.
As froth appears all over the top, add pepper powder and switch off the heat.
Heat ghee in a pan, add mustard seeds and once it splutters add cumin seeds and add this to the rasam.
Garnish with corainder leaves and you tasty rasam is ready.

Bon Appetit!!
