Wash a bunch of cilantro and a bunch of parsley and chop. Use only leaves, cut off the lower part with hard stems.

Step 4

Finely chop the chili peppers. I like it when the sauce is a little spicy, but if you don't add less pepper or don't add it at all.

10 minutes after boiling, the peel of the plums can crack. You can proceed to the next stage of cooking. I had a lot of plum juice, and in order not to evaporate the sauce for a long time, I drained it a bit.

Place a sieve on a large bowl or pan and place all the plums from the pan along with the juice. You can grate the plums with a tablespoon, but if you have a whisk, use it. It turned out to be very convenient.
