      An easy breezy recipe,can be made within 10 minutes,and a very flavourful one …especially when we have cold,pepper and garlic helps you to feel relieved,you can enjoy even having as a hot soup!  I always make this now and then. I learnt from my mom,enjoyed this rasam right from my childhood!! Pepper rasam recipe for cold - best way to fight the throat infection and makes you feel better. Garlic is natural antibiotic and fights the viral throat infection too. Since it take so less time to prepare, you can make it for yourself when you have cold.

  36. I am an avid blog reader and so far I have not commented on anybody's blogs but you just forced me to do it today....You have such a great presentation skill, innovative thoughts to capture the readers as they read thro' your entry and most of all, recipes that helps amature folks start about with cooking without mom's help with the aid of an overseas call(a situation in which I was some 7 yrs back) as well as experienced cooks who can modify their recipes with and also learn something new. KUDOS to you for your talents!!!! I think you need to achieve much more than getting famous through blogs faceless.....
