Turmeric milk recipe

Turmeric milk recipe,Turmeric milk with video, made with fresh turmeric,ginger, pepper and palm jaggery. Generally when we have dry cough or sore throat, amma used to give hot milk with manjal podi and milagu in the night before going to sleep. Generally doctors say milk or milk products thickens the phlegm, but when turmeric and pepper is added it is will not do any harm. The naturopathy doctor whom i visited few months back, suggested me to add 2 pinches of turmeric and pepper powder to the water i drink everyday. It reduces inflammation in the body and acts as an anti oxidant. I have started taking the water in that way and i am used to that now. Try this turmeric milk for the rainy season and say good bye to your cough. I used fresh turmeric in this recipe. You can use turmeric powder too.
