This is one of the easy and quickest rasam recipe without using Rasam powder. We enjoyed delicious Vada-Pav at a friend's place recently. Her Mom asked for the rasam recipe without rasam powder. Gald to share one of the day today South Indian recipe..this recipe is for you Aunty! :)

Tamarind - small piece
Whole pepper corns-1teaspoon
Cumin seeds -1teaspoon 

To temper 
Mustard seeds-1/2teaspoon
Red chilly-1
Few curry leaves & Cilantro
Hing(asafoetida) - 1/8teaspoon

Wash and cut the tomatoes into big chunks.
Take them with tamarind and  a half cup of water in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave it for 4-5 minutes. (time may vary according to the microwave)

Let it cool completely and mash it nicely, and  take out only the juice.

Roast the cumin seeds and pepper corns on low heat for couple of minutes. Once they cool down, crush them along with a clove of garlic and keep it aside.

Heat a teaspoon of oil, make the tempering with mustard seeds,curry leaves,red chilly and hing.


Add the tomato-tamarind juice, add enough salt and let it cook for a few minutes. Rasam will start frothing, by then add the crushed pepper-cumin and garlic and 1/4 teaspoon of sugar. Put off the flame and add chopped cilantro. 

Quick and delicious rasam is ready! Serve with white rice or as a soup.
