Rasam or saru as we call in Karnataka is a comfort food during any season. Itâ€™s a south Indian delicacy. There are many types of rasam originating from different regions of South India. Coconut tomato rasam is a type of rasam which I learnt from my mother, is very simple and flavored. Before my marriage, I used to relish this rasam cooked by my mother when there were sudden guests at home. She never used toor dal for this rasam. In my recipe I have added very little toor dal which can be skipped. I like the taste of this rasam with coconut, tomato and asafoetida.
Cooked toor dal is optional; this rasam can be prepared without toor dal also.
Tamarind paste can be adjusted based on the type of tomato used.
Instead of asafoetida seasoning, garlic can be used. This gives a nice flavor to rasam.
