Pepper Rasam | Milagu Rasam

Pepper Rasam | Milagu Rasam
My mom prepares Pepper Rasam to treat cold and cough. This can be even taken as a Soup. Black Pepper is a native of South India. It is used in South India since ancient times as a medicine and also in regular food. In order to keep Pepper's fragrance and flavour intact, ground the pepper just before preparing dishes. A very simple rasam - just grind all the ingredients and cook till raw smell goes off. Pepper Rasam is taken as a side dish to Rice. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing South Indian Pepper Rasam - Milagu Rasam.
