This healthy recipe has been passed down through generations. This was our go-to remedy for cold, fever, throat infection and as a beauty tonic as well. As I grew up, I realised it does serve as a painkiller and a natural liver detoxifier too. Most of you might have tried turmeric milk but this is a lighter version in the form of tea.
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3-4 cloves crushed into powder
1 pinch nutmeg powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
1-2 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
1-2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1.5 cups of water
4-5 fresh basil leaves (optional)
1 teabag of lemongrass tea (optional)
Raw honey as per taste
Milk of your choice
Simmer all spices, ginger and water on stove top on low flame.
Wait until the quantity of water reduces by half a cup.
Add turmeric and milk. Quantity of milk depends on your taste.
Let it boil for another 2 minutes.
Strain out and add raw honey.
If you are using tea bag, brew it in at this point.
Serve it warm
Hi I have a question about the second ingredient on your ingredient list. I justed wanted to know what you were referring to as "2-3 cloves crushed into powder". What did you mean by gloves? Cloves of the above ingredient or Cloves or something else? Please clarify. Thanks
Hi Zon, I just posted a picture for you in the comment below for cloves. It is a kind of whole spice . If you cannot find it , it would be alright without it, but cloves do help in fighting common cough , cold and skin allergies. Let me know if you can't see the picture .
