Kashayam for cold and cough

This is a simple yet very effective drink that you can have when you fall sick with cold or sore throat. This not only relieves the cold or cough, it also helps in increasing the immunity of the body. This can also be given for small children above the age of 1 year but for small children you have to reduce the amount of pepper used.

Kashayam for Cold

1. Adjust the pepper according to the person. My husband likes a lot of pepper so I tend to add more. 
2. You can add some lemon juice and turmeric powder also to this drink.
3. If giving this to small kids, use only 1 or 2 pepper corns. Taste it before giving it to the kids as the pepper and ginger can make the drink very spicy for small children.

Until next time,
