Paayasam / Payesh/ Kheer is traditionally made of rice, jaggery and milk and is basically a festive drink prepared across India. The Indian calendar is always filled with auspicious occasions and these are incomplete without the Traditional Paayasam. Be it a festival or or be it serving guests, we Indians grab these moments to celebrate with food and sweetmeats.

A South Indian's ultimate comfort food is undoubtedly the Saattru-amudhu @ Rasam, colloquially Saathamudhu. "Saaru aka Sattru" means juice and "Amudhu" - means Nectar = Saattru Amudhu thus pronounced. And, of course this is the second best of elixirs next to Buttermilk. This Lentil soup is almost an everyday delight in South Indian homes. With a little one around, I always make sure to prepare Sattramudhu and this has become a daily ritual for the past one year.
The tomato rasam is the most common and the one below. This apart, there are different varities in tomato rasams and several other close cousins with/without tomatoes and using other veggies/fruits.
