Milk with Palm Sugar Candy/ Jaggery - Masala Milk ~ Great remedy for Cough and Cold

This is not going to be an elaborate post. I'm gonna share a home remedy that my mom gives us when we suffer from cough and cold. It's very simple to prepare and is extremely relieving and soothing to the throat.

Milk with Palm Jaggery

Palm sugar is the main ingredient here. It comes from Palmyra Palm trees.  Here is another useful page on Palm Sugar.

What You Need -

Palm Jaggery (Panam Kalkandu) - about 5 or 6 small candies.
Palm Sugar Candy
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Milk - 1 glass (200 ml)

For Masala Milk, also add -

Dry Ginger (Chukku / Sukku ) - 1/4 inch piece
Pepper corns - 2
Cloves - 2
Cardamom - 2

Blanched almonds (Badam) -  2, chopped into very small pieces

How To -

  • Take a milk pan and boil milk with palm sugar candies and turmeric powder. Add the rest of the ingredients, if you like to, but these two are really vital.

  • You don't need sugar. Palm jaggery is the sweetener here.
  • Stir with a ladle and make sure the palm jaggery mini-rocks are fully dissolved. 
  • Once the milk boils, filter using a tea strainer. This is to make sure the impurities, if any, in the palm sugar are filtered out.
