Quick and Easy Pepper Rasam

My mom gave me this recipe when i was little under the weather one day. Usually anything with pepper makes you feel better when you have cold and this is super easy to make also.

Ingredients :

Pepper - 1/2 spoon
Jeera/ Cumin seeds - 3/4th of a spoon
Tamarind - 1 small lemon size
Mustard seeds, Hing, Cumin seeds for seasoning
Toor daal -1/4 cup
Salt to taste.

Dry grind the Pepper and Jeera
Pressure cook toor daal and keep aside.
Soak tamarind in water for few minutes and take the extract or use 1/2 spoon tamarind concentrate and mix it with water.
Add the pepper jeera powder and salt to the tamarind extract and let it boil till the raw smell of the tamarind goes. Add toor daal and let it boil for another 5 minutes. Season with mustard seeds, jeera, hing and curry leaves. Garnish with cilantro.

There is another way of preparing Pepper rasam which is the original method. I will post it later.

Note : You can adjust the quantity of pepper and cumin seeds according to your taste. If you want it more spicy increase the quantity of pepper.
