Tomato Rasam Recipe (Dal-Lenthil Recipe)

Nothing to beat the chilling winter better than with a piping hot cup of rasam {I have learnt to love the tangy hot "rasam" as a starter, thanks to my Punjabi friends,who get aghast when I ask them to have it with rice}.Ofcourse, we tamilian know it better with rice, but in Northern India, I recall my friends bidding for it against all starters in cold mellow winter afternoons !
