Pepper(Milagu) Rasam

My Notes:

  • Ghee gives a nice flavour to the rasam so dont skip it.
  • Dont let the rasam boil for more time which is the key to make a good rasam.
  • This is little spicy with pepper so adjust red chillies according to your spice level.
  • Adjust water quantity according to the thickness of the tamarind pulp.
  • You can add tomatoes too...if so add it after tempering saute it for few mins till raw smell leaves.
