Kalyana Veetu Rasam Recipe – Wedding Style Tomato Rasam Recipe with step wise pictures. Delicious and hot rasam recipe made using tomatoes and it is similar to the ones which you get in wedding. Taste so yummy with hot rice and poriyal of your choice. 

Rasam is a South Indian style and tangy soup a hint of sweetness. It is traditionally prepared using tomato, tamarind, red chilli, garlic, cumin, black pepper and other spices as seasonings. The spices included in the rasam are known to aid in digestion and hence the rasam is an essential part of South Indian Thali.

The kalyana rasam, as name goes, is a special rasam that is served at Tamilnadu weddings. It is prepared by making a freshly roasted rasam powder which lends a beautiful aroma to the rasam. The mashed tomatoes, tamarind, spices and jaggery all cook with the fresh rasam powder.

The sourness of this rasam is mainly from tomatoes so add little tamarind and lots of tomatoes. pulsed garlic gives the best flavor to the rasam. It’s gives nice taste divine with steamed rice. To be honest, I am a big fan of rasam recipes and my weekend lunch is incomplete without a comforting rasam recipe. In weekends, in Sundays we should prepare rasm because afternoon with heavy non-veg lunch, that dinner will be compulsory rasm rice for better digestion. If I have a marinated chili chicken in my freezer, I do prepare rasam alone for some lazy days. My kids will enjoy to have rasam rice with chicken.
