Tomato Rasam | Thakkali Rasam Recipe | Gluten Free Recipe

Tomato Rasam

Hi Supermoms,

Rasam is the traditional, healthy South Indian soup . It is served as mid course during our meals. There are so many vegetables and fruits that can be used to make rasam. 

You can refer to my Rasam Collection here. 

A look into my collection and I realised that I did not have a basic everyday rasam - Tomato rasam recipe. So, without any delay, thought of adding the recipe here.

A good rasam with appalam/ papad can really brighten even a dull day.
