It is also an immunity-boosting drink and relieves from gas & bloating.
The best part about any authentic Ayurvedic kadha is that it is gluten-free, sugar-free, natural, and quite effective.
What is an Ayurvedic Kadha?
If you are not aware of the Indian Ayurveda school of medicine, a Kadha is an Ayurvedic Immunity Booster Drink. It requires many Ayurvedic herbs and spices. These spices & herbs are sometimes soaked beforehand, then boiled in water to extract their nutrients and activate their medicinal properties. Then it is served hot as an herbal tea. It is considered to be the most effective remedy against cold, cough, flu, and other such symptoms.
Since Indians have been practicing Ayurveda for a very long time, many recipes for Kadha are available. Many families have their own list of basic ingredients with some variations. Mostly, turmeric root, ginger, cinnamon, cardamons – green and black both, black peppercorns, carrom seeds, are some of the common ingredients of a homemade kadha recipe, Some of those are highly effective, some are drinkable and some are not as effective or good to taste.

With all the spices that you have mentioned, I keep a power made of them and add a spoon of it in our everyday tea. Makes the tea better in taste and also good for health. And when we have cold or cough, we add this powder in hot water n drink it.
Thats a really nice recipie because all the ingredients you mentioned are available easily in all households. At such uncertain times, visiting a doctor even for a fever or cold puts us at risk of exposure to covid. So definitely prevention will be better than cure.
Kadhas have become important these days with the current conditions but finding a potent one and making it palatable for kids is a task. Will try this one for my daughter as she might adapt to this atleast.
Oh that is something many have at home with a little edition. My hubby also has this every morning. I, on the other hand, dread to drink anything hot.
AYURVEDIC Kadha is the perfect thing these days for the changing weather and the prevaling pandemic, thanks for sharing
Kadha is the new “chai/cofffee”. Our office serves them regularly when we visit for work. Would try your version as well.
As a kid, I always associated with a sour medicine reserved for when you are sick, but now Kadha has become part of staple diet atleast this year. Liked this recipe with so many ingredients for immunity booster.
yes this kadha give us quick relief
Best one…. Must try
