Tomato and Garlic Rasam(Tili saaru)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi all,

Tomato is my all time favourite. I love its color. It is so essential in almost every recipe, I always keep tomatoes in my fridge. Any type of soup or rasam with tomato is always welcomed by my taste buds. This is one recipe, usually my mom makes. It tastes great when she prepares it.

Here is the recipe,
Tomato – 2 medium
Garlic – ½ bulbs peeled and freshly crushed (if it is big. We get big one in UAE, if taking Indian, 1 full bulb)
Curry leaves – few
Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
Jeera – 1 tsp
Methi seeds – 1/2 tsp
Sugar – 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Chilly powder – 1 to 2 tbsp or as per taste
Lemon juice – ½ tbsp
Oil 1 tbsp
Fresh coriander to garnish.
Heat oil in a vessel. Add Mustard seeds, and then add methi seeds and jeera.
Now add crushed garlic and curry leaves. Fry till garlic becomes slightly brown.
Then add chopped tomato, chilly powder, salt and sugar. Let it cook till tomato starts leaving oil. Now add 2 cups water and let it boil for 10 min.
Add lemon juice, just before switching off the stove. Garnish with coriander.
