How to make Immunity-boosting Rasam

Step 1 Make a coarse paste of spices

To prepare this rasam recipe, set aside a sprig of curry leaves, 2 dried red chillies, mustard seeds and grind all the rest of ingredients to a coarse paste.

Step 2 Boil rasam for 2-3 minutes

Next, take a saucepan with water and add the ground paste to it. Put it over medium flame and mix well. Then, add salt to taste, and leave it to boil. Do not boil for a long time as rasam need just a good boil and not left for a long time. Turn off the flame when done.
