As I caught cold, I was asking for a remedy from my mom and she gave me the recipe for Pepper soup (Milagu Rasam). Its a quick fix and a natural remedy for cold.
1. Black Pepper - 1 tsp
2. Cumin Seeds - 1/4 tsp
3. Curry leaves - 5
4. Tamarind - 1 small pulp
5. Red chilli - 1
6. Garlic - 1 pod, crushed
1. In a pan, fry black pepper, cumin seeds and curry leaves for a couple of minutes without oil.
2. Let it cool and grind it to a coarse powder.
3. Boil 3 cups of water and add the powder, salt, red chilli, garlic, tamarind pulp(directly) and let it boil for 2 minutes.
This soup can be served alone or with rice. Both works great.
