It is the time of the year, when summer is over and weather starts to cool down. I see lots of people around me suffering from cold and cough. The germs of cold spread so quickly and then it is the chain reaction. Once you come in the contact of someone with cold and next day you start sneezing. Same thing happened in my house. My son caught the cold from outside and next me and my husband had runny nose. I decided to make this turmeric latte. It is such an effective drink, so I thought of sharing it with everyone. All the ingredients are mostly available in the pantry.
I have been preparing this latte for almost 30 years. When my son was small, he used to catch cold very frequently. I used to feed him prescription medicine which is worst thing to do. Once I realize that, I started using home-made remedies (grandma’s remedies) to treat cold symptoms and it worked. Since then to this day, I always prepare this latte if anyone in my family is suffering from cold. My person experience is that this is the best medicine. Try drinking this at least twice a day for 2-3 days and you will notice big relief. You will feel the lungs starts to clean up. Sometimes cough syrup dries up mucus instead of draining.
I am using carom seeds which has many health benefits. It helps in treating stomach ache, gas, cold, cholera, Asthma and many more. You all know that turmeric also has many health benefits. I am also adding ginger which is good to have during cold.
Let’s see the recipe on how to make this curative drink.
Preparation Time: 0 minutes
Cooking Time: less than 5 minutes
1 cup milk
1/4 tsp ajwain (carom) seeds
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp dry ginger powder or fresh grated ginger
Few strands of saffron (optional)
1. Heat a dry pan. Add ajwain seeds and roast on low heat until seeds starts changing colour.
2. Immediately add milk in the same pan or ajwain seeds will burn. Also add turmeric powder and ginger powder or grated ginger. You can also add 4-5 strands of saffron if you wish.
3. Bring the milk to boil and remove from the heat.4. You can either strain the milk if you are using fresh ginger. You can skip this step if you are using dry ginger powder and doesn’t mind biting on carom seeds while drinking.
5. Serve this drink when hot. You will feel immediate relief. If you continue drinking this 2-3 days for twice a day, you will be almost back to normal.
