Nimi Pippali Churna or long pepper (Piper longum). An Ayurvedic spice powder. In addition to some other compelling benefits, Pippali long pepper is said to have a rejuvenating effect. The Ama is best removed and eliminated from the body with Pippalli. Pippalli also has a nerve-stimulating, heart-strengthening, antispasmodic and restorative effect.
Very good, light green quality. As usual with good quality, it was picked half immature and processed manually.
Pippali for cooking and medical use
Pippali is a perennial climber that has been used for culinary and medicinal purposes for millennia. In Ayurveda, long pepper is considered a rejuvenating agent because it stimulates digestion and cleanses the body. Freshly ground, I use the long pepper in almost all dishes, but especially in fine curries.
Its sweet and warming spiciness even surpasses the white pepper. The taste of Pippali is not sharp, only when it is metabolized, which helps very well with too much Ama.
