Tomato Rasam-an appetising soup

This rasam recipe is quick and is much like the tomato soup.I've added lots of crushed garlic and peppercorns and this is a good recipe for people who have cold or a stuffy nose.

Tomatoes-3 medium sized
Garlic-5-6 cloves
Black peppercorns-5-6
Salt-to taste
Curry leaves-3-4
Tamarind pulp-2-3 teaspoons
Hing-a generous pinch
Mustard seeds-1/2 teaspoon
Water-2 cups
Fresh coriander leaves-2 teaspoons, finely chopped
Oil-1 teaspoon

-Wash the tomatoes and boil them.Allow the tomatoes to cool and take the skin out.
-Blend the tomatoes in a mixer jar to make a puree.
-Take a big container and add the tomato puree and tamarind pulp and mix well by adding 2 cups of water.
-Crush the peppercorns and add it to the tomato-tamarind water.
-Add salt and hing too and mix well.
-Take a pan and heat 1 teaspoon oil and add the mustard seeds.
-When the mustard seeds splutter,add the curry leaves and crushed garlic and saute for 2 minutes.
-Now add the tomato-tamarind water to the pan and allow it to boil on low heat for 4-5 minutes.
-Garnish finely chopped coriander leaves on top and serve hot with plain steamed rice or drink it as soup.
