AMLA JEERA HEALTH DRINK

Amla is known for Vitamin C and this drink is best suited for all ages. Amla builds immunity, palm crystal is useful in throat problems and lowering cholestrol and jeera is best for digestion. Needless to say, honey is an energy booster with antioxidants. I had some amlas and tried this.

INGREDIENTS:

Amla - 4
Cumin seeds - 2 teaspoons
Palm crystal (Panamkalkandu) - 3 tablespoons (crushed)
Honey - 2 teaspoons

METHOD:

Grate amlas. Crush palm crystals.

Heat a kadai and dry roast cumin seeds till brown. Add 4 cups of water and allow it to boil till it reduces to half. Add the grated amlas and palm crystals, boil it for a minute, switch off the stove and cover it with a lid for 10 minutes. Grind and strain it through a strainer, add honey, stir and drink.
