Tomato Rasam


I got this recipe from my friend Rajeshwari Menon  whose mother used to prepare it well.  She always used to encourage me and regularly  tries my recipes and give valuable feed back on each one of them.  Today  I thought of preparing it because it has lots of medicinal values and feel very good especially when we have a sour throat and cough.

Thank you  Rajeshwari and her mom for this wonderful recipe.
