Pepper and India have a long history together. We love a little sprinkle on our half-fried eggs, we relish a mild hint of pepper in our glass of ‘chaas’ and enjoy a generous helping of it in our lime juice. Research even says that black pepper added to a cup of green tea can help your body better absorb its antioxidants.
