Ingredients:

• 4 – Tomatoes, medium sized

  2. Boil the tomato puree on stove for about 4-5 mins.
  3. Add the rasam powder and boil further for another 4-5 mins. Add water if you feel the puree is very thick.
  4. Add salt, jaggery and mix well.
  5. You can even add a couple of spoons of grated coconut and chopped cilantro.
