Health in a Cup- Kadha
With swine flu still dominating the news it has become difficult to distinguish between the regular flu (Influenza) and Swine Flu. Lot of preventive advice is being given to keep the H1N1 at bay, adding to the confusion.
Here, meanwhile flu like diseases are at its peak. Cold, cough, sore throat, fever…you name it and we have it!
Now I enjoy it as a ‘Herbal Tea’
For the Kadha you need:
Tulsi (Basil) :8-10 leaves washed
Fennel Seeds:1 tsp
Lemon Grass: 1 leaf (Use dried lemon grass if you don’t have fresh )
Soonth (dry ginger powder): 1 pinch
Jeshthimadh (Licorice): 1 pinch
Add all these ingredients to water and boil till the water reduces to half its original quantity.
Filter (if required) and drink hot.
Note: Jeshthimadh is a natural sweetner so I haven’t added honey. Use honey if not using Jeshthimadh.
