  • Wash the plums well and cook it in boiling water for 3-5 mins. The skin will start peeling on its own. Once it cools down, discard the skin & seeds. Mash the pulp well with a fork.

Tips:

  1. The number of plums depends upon the sourness of plums. If they are very sour reduce accordingly.
  2. Do not boil the rasam for a long time. Just bring it to a boil and switch off.
  3. U can add crushed garlic for an extra flavour.
  4. U can add a tsp of sugar or jaggery too.
