Pepper has medicinal values. (supposedly, sentimentally etc..etc..)

Items needed -

1. Cooked dal water 1 cup
2. Tamarind paste 1 tsp ( diluted with ½ cup water) or Tamarind one small lemon size (soaked in water and take pulp)
3. Rasam Powder ¾ tsp.
4. Curry leaves one string
5. Tomato 1
6. Salt to taste
7. Hing little
8. Crushed Garlic 2 pods

Make coarse powder of -
a. 1 tsp black pepper
b. 1 ½ tsp cumin seeds
c. Few coriander seeds

Seasoning -
a. Ghee ½ tsp
b. Mustard seeds ½ tsp
c. Coriander leaves for garnishing

Method -

a. Boil Tamarind water adding Tomato, Rasam powder, Curry leaves, Garlic, Salt and Hing for 6 to 8 min in medium flame or till the raw smell of Tamarind goes.
b. Add grounded powder, boil for 3 minutes.
c. Now dilute it with Cooked dal water .
d. Once boiling is reached, Switch Off.
e. Keep it closed with a lid to retain the aroma.

Pepper Rasam can be served as a soup or with Rice and Papad. #

Awesome rasam, the simplest. Try it with plain water instead of Dhall water, the effect of pepper will be even more intense!!!
