Tomato Rasam | Thakkali Rasam

Tomato Rasam or Thakkali Rasam is an easy recipe and can be prepared in no time.In South India it is served at the end of every feast. It is a must in our house.Typical South Indian lunch would start with the main dish like Sambar or Karakuzhambu and the next will be rasam for sure. This can be had with all vegetarian and non vegetarian side dishes and we love it with fish fry..
