Though this is bong taste buds, but still I am posting this one. Because Rasam is actually very good for health. It keeps away cold and cough. Staying in Bangalore for almost 7 years now, I have become allergic and suffer a lot from cold. Initially I did not like Rasam. Frankly speaking I used to ridicule at others who love Rasam. Too bad of me!
Now I have developed the taste and enjoy rasam. Its a powerhouse of antioxidents and thus have got huge health benefits. I learnt the recipe from my Babysitter. So this time all credits to her 🙂
Tamarind paste 2 tabsp to which 1 cup water is mixed smoothly
2 Sliced tomatoes 
10 cloves of garlic crushed
1big green chilli
Few coriander leaves chopped
Mustard seeds 1 tsp
Turmeric powder 1 tsp
Pepper powder 1 tsp
