Milagu Kuzhambu - Pepper Kuzhambu

Milagu Kuzhambu - Pepper Kuzhambu, is one of the common dish in South India. In our home, we make this when ever anyone of us suffer from cold or sore throat. I have made this kuzhambu in little thicker consistency as I am planning to store it for 2 to 3 days. If you prefer watery consistency, you can add more water. You can store this kuzhambu even for a week if refrigerated. I have added few dry red chilies along with other spices, but you can reduce the number of chilies and add more pepper corns.
