Black Pepper is known as the “King of Spices”. Made by grinding peppercorns, these are the dried berries of the piper nigrum. This is one of the world’s most popular spices and has a sharp and mildly spicy flavor that works with diverse dishes. This can be used in curries, fried dishes, steaks, soups and so much more. Ayurveda uses this in the preparation of many types of medicines.
