Spicy, comforting, healing for colds, cough and the like... There are many variations and this is my variation for a quick rasam.. for the lazy cooks, without losing its charm...
Soak tamarind in 2 cups water. Squeeze the tamarind into the water. Keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan, splutter the cumin seeds in it.
Add crushed ginger and garlic. Let it start to turn brown.
Add the sliced tomato, close with a lid for a few minutes, so that it cooks enough to blend in.
Once it is cooked, add turmeric, chilly powder, coriander powder, pepper, salt and saute for a few seconds.
Then strain the tamarind water through your fingers and add it into the pan. Bring to a boil.
Add chopped coriander leaves once you turn off the stove.
Check for salt.
