Peppered Turmeric Milk

I learned this recipe from my Mother-In-Law (who gave me this hot brew to drink daily twice,when I suffered
cold).This includes simple ingredients from the kitchen shelf.Turmeric's antioxidant and anti-infective properties help u to immune against common cold.Our elders had some very useful recipes which many of the
newer generation unfortunately don't value.

Peppered Turmeric Milk - A medicated milk drink for common cold


250 ml Low Fat milk-boiled
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp half-crushed black pepper-corns
3 tsp palm crystalline sugar(panam kalkandu)


1.Heat the boiled milk in a sauce pan and add the turmeric powder.Mix well.Kepp on stirring this till the milk gets reduced to 200ml measure(10 mins atleast).
2.Add the crushed pepper corns and stir this for 4 more mins.
3.Add the palm crystalline sugar(shown separately in the pic) and mix well till it gets completely dissolved.
4.Serve this hot (atleast twice a day) for 2-3 days.

Note:Home cures can't always replace consulting an expert doctor. Nature remedies may only provide temporary relief and cannot tackle a major infection. If the symptoms persist for another day(even after trying a natural remedy) it's a sure sign that u must see a good Doctor.
