Homemade pepper powder recipe

Pepper powder is quite essential in every household and ours is no exception so I make it and store.I usually make a small batch and store.This lasts me at least for 2-3 months.You can use it for curries,gravies or egg omelette etc.

  • 1/2 cup whole black pepper corns


  • Add pepper corn to a heavy bottomed pan and roast in low flame.Roast 5 mins in low flame, it starts to splutter and turns crispy.Switch off.Make sure to use a dry mixer jar.Cool down then transfer to a mixer jar.
  • Grind to a fine powder or slightly coarse depends on how you prefer.Spread on a plate and let it cool atleast for 2-3 hours.Then store in a clean dry container.
  • Use a dry spoon every time you use it.


Grind it fine or as per your preference.
If you want for omelette and egg make it coarse.i made it for adding to curries so made it fine.
