Pepper Rasam – Visual Recipe

In one our previous health article we read about Health Benefits of Pepper, So I decided why not have a pepper based recipe today.  When you are down with cough and cold, having “pepper rasam” is a popular home remedy and also relaxes and soothens you. Popularly known as ‘Milagu rasam’ in Tamil, even in regular days, makes a good gravy for piping hot rice! Let’s see how to make pepper rasam.

Ingredients to make pepper rasam:

Pepper (whole) – 1 tbsp

Red chilly – 1

Garlic – 10

Jeera – 1/2 tbsp

Asafoetida – 1 pinch (optional, incase you don’t like the flavour)

Turmeric powder – little less than 1/4 tbsp

Tamarind – 1 small lemon size (as per your taste you can increase the quantity)

Cooking oil – 2 tbsp

Mustard seeds – 1/2 tbsp

Curry leaves – 4-5

Salt – as per taste.

 Step 1:

Grind all ingredients,  except tamarind coarsely as show in pic.

Step 2:

Mix well the tamarind in 2 cups of water and strain it. Add salt to it.

Step 3:

Add 2 tbsp oil in cooking pan and saute mustard seeds and curry leaves.

Step 4:

Add the coarsely grounded ingredients into the fry pan and stir in low flame for 1 minute.

Step 5:

Add the tamarind water and if needed add required quantity of salt. In medium flame, allow it to boil but don’t let it boil too much.

That’s it! Pepper rasam is ready to be served…
