Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Coriander leaves stems - a few, cut in 3" long pieces

HOW TO MAKE:
Grind tomatoes, garlic and turmeric together to a fine paste. ( makes 1 cup )
Take Dalitoy in a vessel and pour 2-3 cups of water.
Add tomato paste, coriander leaves stems and tamarind and boil it.
Now add rasam powder and salt and boil for few more minutes.
