Milagu rasam | Pepper rasam | a simple comfort and soothing rasam without cooked dal and tomato. Milagu rasam recipe in Tamil with full video and step by step pictures.

We South Indians make many varieties of rasam at home. Usually tomato is added in making rasam, but this pepper rasam is made without adding tomato. In our home, I make rasam on weekend only. As now it is winter, we all crave hot piping rasam to just sip as a soup. This Milagu rasam, can be served with rice or can be had as clear soup too.

The flavour of pepper and jeera added in making the fresh rasam powder, elevates the taste of the rasam. Usually, we add dal water to the rasam, but in this, we are not adding that. So we can make this Milagu rasam in a jiffy.
