pepper rasam recipepepper rasam recipe | milagu rasam recipe | menasina saaru with step by step photo and video recipe. basically a watery pepper flavoured tomato rasam which is typically enjoyed with hot steamed rice or can be consumed as a drink or soup. it is typically prepared during monsoon or winter season to get extra heat from pepper. further it can be extended with garlic pods to make the delicious pepper garlic rasam recipe.

my first encounter with this pepper rasam recipe was in bangalore in authentic andhra meals mess. my husband took me to this place and apparently it was his favourite hangout place during his bachelor days. basically it was unlimited meals thali and i wasn’t sure about the menu too. the first offering in the thali was this watery, almost colourless pepper rasam. initially i was confused with the texture of this rasam, as my understanding of rasam was always derived from lentils. but certainly after my meal, i was already a fan of this simple milagu rasam recipe.

furthermore, some important tips and suggestions for a perfect pepper rasam recipe. firstly, i have shared this recipe without adding cooked and mashed dal. alternatively, it can also be prepared by adding pressure cooked dal to improve the consistency. secondly, if you do not prefer tomatoes in your pepper rasam, you can completely skip it. but make sure to add half cup of tamarind juice in place of tomato. note that this half cup addition is on top of the 1 cup mentioned in the recipe card. finally, do not over boil milagu rasam, otherwise the flavours of pepper may vanish.

finally i would like to mention my other rasam recipes collection with this post. this main includes, tomato rasam, udupi rasam, coconut milk rasam, beetroot rasam, lemon rasam, mysore rasam, kokum rasam and tomato onion rasam. also, do check my other recipes collection like,
