Tomato Saaru/Rasam

Yes,that the number i got when i searched for tomato rasam in Google.Each and everyone have their own version of making this rasam.This is my version.
Saaru, yes in tulu.I have to say my hubby's is favorite.I do make different kinds but this one is his favorite.This is simple and quick and goes well with rice and ghee.

Small Tomato-2
Green Chilli-1
Tamarind-Small lemon size(soak in warm water)
Toor dhal-a handful(pressure cooked)
Rasam Powder-1tbsp(MTR works good too)
Salt-as per taste
Turmeric Powder-1/2tsp
Coriander leaves-for Garnish
Jeera and Mustard seeds with Curry leaves for Tampering

1.Cut the tomato and with a little water boil it.Can do in microwave in a safe bowl for 4mins.
2.Cool it and peel of the skin and smash it with potato masher or grind it a little.
3.In a pan with this mixture add the tamarind juice,salt,turmeric powder and jaggery.
4.Bring the mixture to boil and add the boiled toor dhal.
5.When it boils add the rasam powder and boil it.
6.If the mixture is thick add enough water to make flowing consistency.
7.Keep it in low flame and boil it until the froth comes up.
8.Garnish with coriander leaves
9.Tamper with mustard and jeera seeds with little oil.

Note: If you dont have boiled toor dhal in handy you can omit that step.
Serve hot with rice and ghee and Enjoy!!!
