Mysuru tomato saaru or Mysore rasam recipe explained with step by step pictures. Mysore tomato saaru or mysore rasam is prepared using toor dal, tomato, coconut, Mysore rasam powder or saarina pudi, tamarind, jaggery and salt. Rasam powder or saarina pudi is prepared by using red chili, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds, pepper, asafoetida and mustard seeds. This is a very tasty and authentic mysore rasam recipe. This type of tomato saaru or rasam is popular in malnad region as well.
In Karnataka rasam is familiar and popular by name "saaru". And tomato saaru or rasam recipe varies from region to region. This is one rasam recipe, which is in practice across Mysuru region of Karnataka. I have used fresh ground masala in this rasam recipe. But generally rasam powder is ground with fresh grated coconut. But please note, fresh grated coconut is an optional ingredient. I have also seen many people preparing the saaru or rasam without coconut.
