FAQs about Chukku Malli Kashayam:

  1. How often can I consume this in a month? Upto once or twice a week is completely fine?
  2. Can I freeze this for further use? All herbal teas are to be consumed immediately. One can make a largish pot of this to consume within a few hours. Beyond that, it loses its potency, even if re-heated during the day 
  3. I don’t have access to fresh oregano and dry ginger powder . Can I still make this tea? The nearest alternatives to fresh oregano is dried oregano, also add 3-4 tbsp of fresh mint leaves. In place of dry ginger powder, one can use fresh ginger (crushed), but a limited quantity 
  4. Can this be consumed cold? All herbal teas are recommended to be had hot or warm.

    This will be a very handy recipe when winter sets in. Can I used dried Indian borage and dried tulsi as we hardly get fresh ones here?

    Herbal tea with Indian borage, ginger, coriander seeds and cumin was what my mother in law use to give to drink everyday during my postpartum. With tulsi and pepper added makes it an excellent hot drink to enjoy when one comes down with colds and coughs.

    Wow! this chukku malli kashayam is definitely healthy and I am sure it will be something I should be feeding the kiddo who is refusing to eat. 😀 It will make my life easy.
