Pepper - Jeera Rice

Tried lots of home remedy using Jeera, Ginger, Peppercorns and Garlic to get rid of from Cold and Throat infection. Actually got fed up of the usual Rasam and Pepper kozhambu, so tried this rice using coarsely ground Jeera and Peppercorns. Very simple recipe which can be prepared with the leftover rice and happy that I found little relief from cold after taking this. Very spicy rice and worked well with a cup of hot ginger Tea. All the ingredients which I had used in this recipe has lots of medicinal properties. Garlic and Jeera, both are an excellent remedy for digestion and gastric problem. And Peppercorns are very good for cold and throat infection.
