Instant Rasam (Quick Tomato Rasam)


                                     I have already blogged 2 recipes of rasam. Now a days I stick to this recipe because its a very easy, fast and tasty preparation. Bachelors who come home tired and want to have something hot and tasty very fast can have this along with chips. Even my younger one is able to prepare this in no time with almost good taste. I want my readers to try it once and get back with comments.
Ingredients
Tomato -1 (if you use a bigger one reduce the tamarind used)
Red chili-2 (1 for grinding and one for seasoning) I have shown 4 but use just 2
Garlic-7 pods
Pepper corns-1 ½ teaspoons
Small jeera-1 ½ teaspoons
Tamarind-little
Turmeric powder-1/2 teaspoon
Curry leaves &coriander leaves-little
Jaggerry –a small piece (totally optional) Try with and without and find out your taste
Procedure
In the medium jar of the mixie grind the tomato, pepper corn,jeera,garlic,1 red chili and turmeric powder. Run the mixie for a minute. In 3 cups of water add the salt required along with the tamarind and keep ready.
Keep the kadai in the stove. In a teaspoon or two of cooking oil season the rasam with a teaspoon of mustard seed ,small jeera and little curry leaves. Pour the grinded mix into the kadai. Keep the stove in medium and sauté till you get a nice flavor. Now add the tamarind salt water and bring rasam to a nice boil (boil for atleast 3 minutes).  Jaggerry if used can be added now and cook for a minute.Check for the salt and hot taste. If found anything less, little pepper  jeera powder or salt can be added. Switch off and garnish with coriander leaves if you have

Dear Madam,
We are very much benifited. My wife s preparing each & every dish from your blog. We are very much lucky to have this authnetic chettinad food. We(Erode) in our place used to prepare Chicken Aasari(only in Country chicken comes good) by using red chillies,gingely oil,pearl onions,salt,garlic(2 pods),turmeric powder,without adding any masala. Does chettiars make this recipe? We may also call it as Chicken Chinthamani. It will be like kothu kari. Thank you!
