Spicy Pepper Rasam | Miriyaala Charu

Spicy Pepper Rasam | Miriyaala Charu
Spicy addition of black pepper to make yummy rasam

Do you know Black Pepper is a native to India? It originated from Kerala and then spread to the rest of south India and then became famous as a spice plant in entire Southeast Asia. It has become so famous that almost every dish contains at least a pinch of black pepper. 

Black pepper helps in curing indigestion and also promotes intestinal health. Especially, when a person is suffering from cold, black pepper provides a soothing relief to the sore throat and suppresses coughs

Black pepper occupies an important part in the recipe I posted today. If this warm rasam is eaten while suffering from cold, it definitely gives a lot of relief. Even if you don’t have any cold, eat this rasam for good digestion. This is so easy to prepare with very little ingredients.

  • 2 tsp Black Peppercorns (మిరియాలు)
  • 3 cups Water
  • Tamarind pulp as needed
  • A pinch of Turmeric Powder
  • Salt
For Seasoning/Tempering:
  • ½ tsp Oil
  • ½ tsp Mustard Seeds
  • ¼ tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 2 dry red Chilies
  1. Powder peppercorns and keep aside.
  2. Combine water with tamarind pulp + turmeric powder + salt and stir well. Bring this to a boil.
  3. Add black pepper powder, stir well and leave for some time on low flame.
  4. Check for salt and sourness and adjust accordingly and turn off the flame.
  5. In a small pan heat oil and add mustard seeds. When they pop, add cumin seeds + red chilies and sauté well.
  6. Add this seasoning to the prepared rasam and stir well.
  7. That's all!
  8. Enjoy this spicy, good for throat rasam with steaming hot rice.
  9. Yummy and feels good for the sore throat!
