A Traditional & Healthy Rasam which tastes yummy with a hot steamed rice and a spoon of ghee
Milagu Rasam is a traditional and healthy rasam made using pepper and cumin seeds. Since it’s a great remedy for cold and sore throat it’s often being seen a Rasam which is being made when someone in the family is sick. But I make this very often as I like the taste of pepper jeera mix and I love to have this with hot steaming rice and a spoon of ghee.
There are few different variations of the Milagu Rasam can be made.
1. Adding a spoon of Toor Dal and 1 Red chilli to the grinding ingredients.
We can fry the toor dal and red chili in a teaspoon of ghee and either we can fry the peppercorns or we can add it raw along with raw cumin seeds and grind it to a powder and add it to tamarind juice.
2. Adding Garlic also to the same rasam. We can crush 2-3 garlic and add it to the tamarind juice and allow it to boil along with the tamarind juice.
I am giving here the very plain basic Milagu Rasam that i make often in my home. We can even serve this healthy rasam as a starter soup.
