This tasty ‘tea’ is very effective against colds, and the best part is that it is tasty and caffeine-free; so it is sure to suit one and all.
The spice powder that is combined with milk and misri to make this herbal drink, is comprised of seeds that are there in everbody’s masala dabba, so you do not have to go hunting for anything.
This combination is very effective in soothing the throat and expelling mucus, the two most troublesome symptoms of a cold! You can prepare the Cold Reliever spice powder and store it in a dry, air-tight container for ready use.
But, make only small batches, because the powder will lose its aroma and efficacy over time. Remember, anything is best when prepared fresh!
You can also try other home remedies that help to relieve cold like Tulsi ka Kadha and Ajwain and Turmeric Milk .
