I had Cough and sore throat for a week spending sleepless Nights if that wasn’t enough got stuck for 24 hrs in Pune-Bhuj Express coz of some mishap at #Dahanu I was trapped by cough and no #Benadryl was helping to make me sleep at nights thats what Dry cough does to you !!! Googled gave suggestion of sipping a hot beverage, I made green tea using Mint,Tulsi,Lemon Grass and Lemon finished it pouring honey and filled a Vaccum Flask. It was a big relief when Cough would attacks at 2 in night, Gulp a Shot of hot Green Tea – So that was a #BlogPost TIP for Cough
Coming back to 24 hrs Train Trap, Reaching home got a warm Bear Hug from MOM with a Vapouriser in background which troubled me !!! Went thru that Steamy Experience and then Granny Appeared with a glass of Haldi Doodh for me !! Dadima Ke Nuskhe is what came to my mind but I had to gulp it thru my sore throat though felt good for a moment(that aftertaste of Turmeric 😛 I know) Indeed had a nice sleep without any cough at night.
I had Haldhi Doodh for 5 days in a row which gave my mucus a run !!! There was much of GAGA over Turmeric Latte,Golden Turmeric in Western Countries 😛 but its our ancient “Dadi ma Ka Nuskha” aka “Haldi Doodh” which has got a MAKEOVER. There are much of variations of Turmeric Milk in every household, At my Aunt’s Place it is just milk,turmeric and Sugar given every single day to my cousins, it was served to my as well throughout my stay at their place- I can understand what my cousins have been going thru their childhood days;EveryDay Haldi Doodh Ritual is for Kids only !! No one would argue with my Uncle as he was Medical Representative(A am letting a small Secret, Uncle used to look like Raj Kapoor in his 20s 😛 but in 40s was not less than a Dictator) But now I realize that it was very good habit for building IMMUNITY.
I would not like list out the Benefits of Turmeric Milk coz it all over the Internet !!! The recipe contains GHEE which aids in reliving sore throat(Melts and Coats ur throat). Salt is added for a instant relief in cough but it has to be added at the end. There several options of adding Honey,Black Pepper,Cinnamon to the Golden Turmeric Milk but I am going to Share a DIY recipe which relieved my COUGH
