ಮುಂಜಾವಿನ ಚುಮು ಚುಮು ಚಳಿ ಇರಲಿ.. 

ಮಧ್ಯಾನದ ಉರಿ ಬಿಸಿಲಿರಲಿ ..
ಮುಸ್ಸಂಜೆಯ ತಂಪಿರಲಿ ..
ಕಷಾಯದ ಇಂಪು ಸದಾ ನಿಮ್ಮ ತನು ಮನವನ್ನು ನವಿರೆರಿಸುತ್ತೈರಲಿ :) 

The much awaited Kashaya is finally here!! Well,  the procedure is actually nothing but a cake walk! but it's sure to comfort your throat, cough and cold better than any other expectorant :) As mentioned in my earlier post you are free to add Hippali, Jeshta Madhu and dry ginger powder but since it's availability is limited and exorbitant across geographical barriers I refrained myself from adding them. So here's your cup of comforting 'Kashaya' :) 

Serves- 2 glasses
Shelf life- 1/2 an hour

Milk 2 cups
Water 2 tbsp
Turmeric A pinch
Jaggery 2 tbsp
Kashaya Powder 2 tbsp
Saffron, optional 2 strands


1. Boil water in a saucepan and add the Kashaya powder, boil for yet another minute and add milk. Now simmer the flame and add jaggery. Give it a stir until it dissolves. 

2. Add a pinch of turmeric and give it another stir and boil. Strain the mixture and transfer it to a glass and add a strand or 2 of saffron. Drink while it's hot that's when it actually has an effect on your sore throat.
