Garlic saru or rasam is my fav combi with rice because its light, tangy and spicy mixed with Indian spice flavours. Freshly ground masala gives the heavenly flavors to the dish.  Its the best comfort food when one suffer with sore throat and runny nose.

1 tsp Jeera.

2 tbsp Coriander seeds.

1 tbsp Grated Coconut.

2 Dry Red Chilli.

Small piece of ginger.

2 tbsp of Tamarind extract.

Blanch Tomatoes and grind them. ( in boiling water add tomato with salt. Let it sit for 10 min. Then  take off the tomato skin and grind them)
