This rasam is truly instant, and perfect for those cold, rainy days, and when you're not feeling your best. Perfect starter dish for your husband/child learning to cook, especially when mom is under the weather.
You can make this with only tomatoes as well. In that case, use more, about 4-6 medium and not very sweet ones.
Try not to skip the curry leaves - they add so much flavor.
Increase/decrease the quantity of pepper and chilis used based on your heat tolerance.
Enjoy as a soup, or as an appetizer drink. I always make extra when I make this rasam, as my husband wanders over, pulled by the aroma, and grabs a cup. Makes a great appetizer, and gets your juices flowing!
This rasam is for both my kids!
