Written By Unknown on Sunday, February 14, 2016 | 4:32:00 PM

Black pepper is a warming spice and contributes the pungent taste. This is considered to be an important healing spice in Ayurveda.

You can even add this to the list of Margazhi variety rice.

Ingredients :

  • Rice - 1/2 cup
  • Curry leaves -  1 sprig 
  • Black Pepper -  1 tspn 
  • Ghee - 1 tblspn 
  • Salt

Method :

  • Keep the cooked rice ready and let it cool down.
  • Fry black pepper without oil in a pan and remove it when it starts spluttering. Once it cools down,  make a powder in mixie.
  • Add 1/2 tspn ghee to pan and dry roast curry leaves till it shrinks and slightly crisp. Remove and keep it in a plate. Crush it with hands after it cools down.
  • Now add remaining ghee to pan add the crushed curry leaves and pepper powder and fry for a moment and this is the stage to add rice and salt to mix well. 
  • Put the flame off. 
  • Transfer this to plate and consume it hot with any gravy or papad.


  • Pepper rice can be taken at the time of cold, cough and indigestion.
  • When preparing this rice add freshly crushed pepper powder. Don't use the store bought one, the aroma and taste you will not get alike with fresh powder.
  • You can add the black pepper more or less according to your pungent level.
  • You can even add ghee to adjust the pungent level.
  • Frying Black pepper powder in ghee reduces the pungent.
As always, take care of your and others allergy levels into consideration.
