For this month of Taste and Create , I am paired with PJ of seduce your tastebuds. I choose to make the Nellore Rasam from her space as my daughter loves the flavour of garlic and I rarely cook rasam with garlic.

Tomato      2 ripe
Tamarind paste  2 Tbsp
Garlic pods      2,grated
Asafoetida        a pinch
Mustard          1 tsp
Cumin seeds    1tsp
 Red chillies    2 broken
Curry leaves     a few
Coriander leaves to garnish
Oil                  1 tsp

Dry roast and powder

Peppercorns   1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds   1/2 tsp

Blanch tomatoes, remove the skin ans crush them lightly.
Dilute the tamarind paste in 2 cups of water
