Throat itch/Cough home remedy

28 Dec

This one is straight from the Mom cookbook of magic medicine. I don’t know why it works..but it seems to work whenever I have a bad throat.

1. Get equal measures of cumin seeds, black pepper and ginger. Grind them all together into a fine powder. If you do not have a mixer like me now 🙂 buy all the stuff in pre-powdered form and mix equal measures of each of them together.

2. Get some carom seeds.Grind it if you can and mix with the powder in Step 1. If not that’s fine.

3.  Take a spoonful of the powder in Step 1 and 2 spoonfuls of the seeds in Step 2. Mix together.

4. Boil a cup of water and add the powder to the water as it is boiling. Let it simmer for a little while..maybe a minute or two.

5. Switch off flame and pour water into a cup. Don’t throw away the seeds; you can re-use them for a glass or two more at least.

Drink around 1/4th to 1/2 a hot and as concentrated as you can. Sip it slowly, it’s not tasty but it’s magic for the throat. Drink it thrice a day for at least 2-3 days in a row. If it still doesn’t get okay, go to a doctor 🙂
