Well..........season being so bad, and return from a quite cold place, has left us with cold, cough and lot of chest congestion....but one good thing is, the advent of this recipe!!
Nowadays, I am strictly against antibiotics (unless unavoidable), and allopathy medicines.
Though I can make kandanthippili rasam, don't have the strength or energy to make that.
So, I was just browsing about the various medicinal benefits of a few things I know...decided to combine them in powder form, which I can add to milk and drink.
* Palm Candy...which is good for respiratory problems
* Turmeric powder....... good for cold and cough, has the richest Curcumin
* Long pepper ..... keeps the respiratory problems at bay
* Pepper ---good for cold and cough and lungs
* Cardamom ... good in treating infections, and also useful to alleviate breathing difficulty
* Dry ginger ...great in relieving cough, cold and sore throat
So, these are the wonder-ingredients that have gone into this powder...
Who has the patience to drink milk with turmeric everyday???
Who has the patience to drink milk with pepper everyday???
Who has the patience to make kandanthippili rasam, when unwell???
Who has the patience to add ginger in tea, while  indisposed???
Who will always have a ready stock of palm candies??
So...
 Here comes , Malpat's Miracle powder, combining all these into one, so, work becomes easier for us.
I could have taken a better photo, wiping the platform etc...sorry!! had no energy!! had no strength!!




Ingredients
Palm candy - 7-8 pieces
Long pepper( kandanthippili) - 4-5 pieces
Pepper - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
Dry ginger - a small piece
Cardamom - 3-4

Yields about 1/2 a small bottle


The above mentioned ingredients loaded into blender jar



Powdered


Stored in an airtight container.
 Please boil one tsp of this powder with  1 cup milk, simmer for 2 minutes, then strain ...there might be some impurities in palm candy......... and drink it hot-hot before going to bed. Well......I am going to try this out too for 3-4 days...


After drinking this for 3 nights, on the 4th day:

Day 1: No cough during sleep
Day 2: chest congestion reduced to great extent
Day 3: Cold gone fully, over all feeling lot better
Day 4: Ready to travel again!!!😊😊😊😊😊

Notes
* This can be made in small quantities like this, to retain freshness.
*Or, if you need to make slightly larger quantity, then should be stored in refrigerator, because it is not going to be used everyday.
* A tsp of honey can be added too.
