Pepper Cumin tomato Rasam Milagu seeragam Rasam

Seeragam Milagu Sathumadhu(rasam) or Jeera Pepper Rasam , is a spicy south Indian Sorbet that is usually taken as a detox medicine or when one is affected by cold and flu. Very simple rasam , takes about 15 minutes for the entire preparation. I'm going to show you the traditional way of cooking this rasam. 


Tamarind - Lemon size
Tomato -2
Turmeric powder - ½ tsp
Cumin seeds - 1tsp
Mustard seeds - 1tsp
Urad Dal - 1tsp
Black pepper - 1tsp
Red chilli - 3
Garlic pods - 5
Curry Leaves - 1 leaflet
Coriander leaves
Asafoetida powder - a pinch
Oil for seasoning
Salt for taste


Add slight hot water with tamarind and keep it for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes take the tamarind water extract.

You could use the toor dal water for this reason, for more taste. But optional.

Add chopped tomato with tamarind water and squeeze in your hand. Add tamarind powder and keep this mix for another 15 minutes.

Heat oil in a pan and add oil. Once oil hot, add mustard seeds and urad dal.

When mustard starts splutter, add cumin seeds and crushed pepper, crushed garlic, curry leaves , red chilli, asafoetida powder and fry it.

Once the raw smell of garlic goes out add, kept tamarind, tomato water and bring it to heat.

Once bubbles started out switch off the flame and remove Rasam from the stove.

Add coriander leaves on top of it now.

That's it, now the tasty Rasam is ready to serve.
