Tomato Rasam Recipe is such a comforting food that I used to have Rice mixed with this Tomato Rasam for my breakfast. This is the only food which I used to eat comfortably before going to my exams. This used to help me a lot to overcome the stress of exams.

I can never compromise with the taste of Tomato Rasam Recipe. For me what my Mom prepares is the bench mark. I try to match the taste but I can never reach there. Even then I would never stop making this as I crave for it.

The main ingredient for the Tomato Rasam Recipe is the Rasam Powder. Again homemade powders are always the best. Apart from what is made at home I like the Rasam Powder that I buy whenever I go to Hornadu, a pilgrim place in South Karnataka. You can always make this powder in more quantity and use it as and when required. But if you have patience and time the freshly made powder is always a hit.
