with step by step photo recipe. the mild spiciness from pepper, the strong flavour of ginger and sweetness of milk and jaggery makes the perfect recipe of kashaya.  it is winter over here and my husband is having slight fever so i asked my mom the recipe and prepared.

this kashayam is considered to be a fast relief if you are suffering from cold and fever. my mom prepares kashayam with many different variantions. if you are addicted to caffeine and looking for alternatives?? then you must try kashaya.

i usually prepare kashayam powder with spices like, pepper, jeera, cardamom, coriander seeds, jaggery. you can substitute any of these spices or completely skip it. my mom prepares powder in a large quantity and store in air tight container and prepares kashayam drink during evening snacks.

  1. Dear Maam,
    Thanks for presenting such a wonderful recipe of Kashaya. We have tried it at home. its so tasty. I roasted the grains before grinding. I will keep it in air tight container and use after few months. But I have some doubts.

    1) Can we add nutmeg(Jayfal) in this material?
    2) Is there any preservative to be added in this powder? if yes, which?
    3) without any preservative for how many days it can be last?
    4) After opening the container, within how many days the powder to be consumed?

    • Hello, you add spices of your choice to make it more flavourful.. btw do not add any preservatives as kashaya needs to be free from all such stuffs.. also dry roast the spices well so that it last long.. and if you are scared, you can store in refrigerator to last long.
