thakkali rasam, instant tomato rasam recipe

during winters i end up preparing rasam often. tomato rasam is a favorite with us and so most often its tomato rasam that i end up cooking. in this post, i am sharing the recipe of quick thakkali rasam. here i personally prefer to puree the tomatoes, but if you like chunky pieces of tomatoes, then just chop them and add to the tempering.

in this recipe you do not need to add rasam powder or tamarind. i have also shared an easy rasam recipe which is made without rasam powder.

serve thakkali rasam as a warming soup or have it with steamed rice. you can also serve it with the combo of rice and a veggie dish like potato roast, cabbage poriyal, beetroot thoran, ladies finger fry etc.

  1. Thank you for your easy recipes. I have a suggestion, I have downloaded android app but I mostly use the desktop version to narrow down on a recipe. I then use mobile app when I need to quickly refer to cooking instructions or simply to source the required ingredients. If you could have a common login on both the platforms, that way, I can easily tag my favorite recipes and access from any device with a simple login.

    • Welcome Rajeev. Thanks for your suggestion. However it will be too difficult for us to implement this.

  2. I installed the app right now nd tried rasam. it was awesome?

    • thanks for the feedback pooja. glad to know.
