Milagu Jeera Rasam

Milagu Jeera Rasam is a popular South Indian Brahmin style rasam. It can be made when we take oil bath at home. Typical menu happens to be included once in a weeks time. As pepper included in it, will get rid of all cold related problems and helps in clearing up any throat problems for me. I used to mix it with hot rice with appalam as it usual side dish choice. Sometimes, I prepare it and drink it directly like soup, will make my stomach feel good
