Today we had Tomato rasam for my lunch. I tried to take pictures while cooking using my iphone. Its making my blogging experience very easy and fun 🙂 No camera and no laptop too. I’m doing evrything on my phone when I’m relaxing 🙂
Couple of days back my friend made this rasam for me . My husband and daughter loved very this very much. You know they love most of the dishes shared by others rather than mine , common thing happens in my friend’s family too 😉
I prepare tomato rasam in the same way except onions and green chillies. Anyways here is the recipe :
Ingredients for Tomato Charu or Tomato Rasam :
1) Tomatoes 2
2) Onion 1
3) Green Chillies 2-3

Welcome to my blog.I blog about healthy and traditional Indian food. I love cooking from scratch and occasionally semi home-made food and junk food here and there. I’ve been into cooking after completing my graduation. I have started learning from my Mom and many Television cookery shows irrespective of language. Its been hell of a curve with few ups and downs 😉 Currently I live with my family in hot Texas 🙂
