Kandanthippili Rasam | Long Pepper Rasam Recipe with step by step pictures

One of the quintessential dish on our lunch meal is Rasam! Everyone in our family loves rasam and we need it everyday.So,I have around 30 varieties of rasam in the repertoire to break monotony of making and serving just one or two !

I saw this Kandanthippili Rasam | Long Pepper Rasam Recipe on Priya’s blog long back and had bookmarked it. I also got a pack of long pepper just to make this rasam. But somehow I kept postponing making this delicious side.


Finally I made this a couple of months back and it has been a regular on the menu since then.I have made a few changes to the original recipe and it has become a favorite at home!

Kandanthippili or Long pepper is a spice with so many medicinal properties.This dried herb which is available as small sticks in the shops, is a good stimulant for the digestive and respiratory system

Now that winter is here, it is a very apt dish to make and serve.With most of us down with cold and sniffles, this is one comfort food for all of us!

It can served with steamed rice  / as a warm beverage.

This comfort food is for the Kids Delight event that I am hosting this month with the theme  – Winter Warmers.

  1. I love kandathippili rasam and have not eaten it after my amma passed away. I will buy some kandathippili from India this year and make it as soon as I get back. I am tempted to eat some steaming hot rasam saadham now.
