Tomato Lentil Soup

One of the easiest methods to make rasam or a thin soup with tomatoes and lentils, I learnt this dish from mom today, who was actually making it for poor me. This is one of the best soups to have when you have a cold or if you are too lazy to make an elaborate version.

Diced tomatoes 1 cup
Green gram or tuvar dal ½ cup
Chopped coriander
Crushed pepper corns
Juice of lime
Green chillies
Salt to taste
Mustard seeds
Cumin seeds

1. Pressure cook the lentils and set aside.
2. In a heavy bottomed vessel, boil water and add the tomatoes, coriander, crushed pepper, including the green chillies.
3. Add the cooked lentils to this soup and mix well.
4. Add salt to taste.
5. In a small vessel, heat ghee and splutter mustard seeds, cumin, asafoetida, and crushed pepper.
6. Pour it into the soup.
7. Remove the soup from the stove and squeeze the juice of lime for that tangy spell.
8. Garnish with coriander and s
erve hot.
