I hope you had a great Dasara festival. Indian Food Kitchen Blog hasn’t been busy since Ganesha Chaturthi (since the last article). I had been working on Go Dakshin, a South India tourism website (Do check it out and let me know how you like it / don’t like it).
Rasam is, according to me, the simplest gravy / curry dish you can make. For bachelors / spouses who are made to cook / those starting out in Indian cooking etc, Rasam is a good starter dish. You can use it to eat it with rice or have it as a soup.
Simplest among Rasams is Tomato Rasam. I went searching around for videos and I found this one on Videojug.com. VideoJug videos are great in that they show thier videos in a step-by-step manner in which they explain to do things.
In this video, the chef Â takes you through a simple method to make Tomato Rasam.
The video is right below this (Note: A broadband or a fast internet connection is recommended to watch this video)
This Rasam doesn’t make use of Tamarind Juice which is a common ingredient. You can sme tamarind extract just before you get the Rasam to boil.
