Yummy Raw mango rasam is ready.
1) This rasam tastes better when you use a sour variety. The more sour it is, more tastier the rasam will be. If in case the sour taste is not coming out well, you can add 2 tsp of Lemon juice at the final stage.
2) You can add 1 tsp of rasam powder, if you don't like it plain.
3) You can add few finely chopped coriander finally.
4) If you want to make it as a mango dal rasam, cook a ladle of toor dal and add it to rasam.
