Golden Milk|Turmeric Milk

     Turmeric milk is also called golden milk because of its color.According to me it taste bit similar to masala milk(but very low in calories than that)
     This golden milk i usually do when we have cold or cough.Add little pepper makes it little spicy and good during cold days. Adding of turmeric gives a nice color to the milk,it has more medicinal benefits too(explained at the end of post).When my daughter catches cold i do follow all of the below mentioned points to give a quick relief(It takes at least 2 days).

These are some of the remedy my grand ma and my mom did for us .Now i am doing it for my daughter.
    When she has stuffy nose or when her eyes get wet during cold.I do "othadam" which can be done with kitchen towel wrapped.
  • How to do Othadam:
                Heat a tava ,try to touch the tava with the base of wrapped towel.It should be hot.You can check the temperature when you are doing for kids .then try to put it in forehead ,neck ,below the eyes (can be done whenever it is paining)
  • Try to take more vitamin c.
  • Making a hot shower reduces nasal congestion.
  • People apply some medicinal leaves that take the water out the head(cold air inside head is the cause for head aches)
  • Add more veggies,pepper to your diet.
  • Try to drink more warm water(heat in microwave for 20-30 seconds).
  • Reduce the milk intake(try to dilute the milk and give the kids)
  • Add this golden milk day,night.You can substitute honey with sugar too.(sometimes i do that)
