Spices play a crucial role in Indian cooking as we vibrantly use different spices to make different dishes. One of the most commonly used spice mix in South India is Rasam Powder to make comforting rasam. Rasam is an Indian clear soup and I have already shared recipes for it. Pepper rasam powder is used to make pepper rasam which has predominant taste of pepper and cumin seeds. If you have the spice mix handy, it will be easier to prepare the soup. I have shared a recipe earlier in my blog for Regular Rasam Powder which we use to make Tomato Rasam or Lemon Rasam. Click Here for its recipe.
Today, I’m exclusively sharing the recipe of Pepper Rasam Powder. I will share the complete recipe to make comforting pepper rasam using this spice mix soon..
