Dry Ginger & Dry Amla Powder

Actually dunno whether this post need an introduction, all of us know the medicinal value of dry ginger and also needless to say how healthy amlas are. Seriously these both dry ginger and dry amla makes an incredible home remedy for cough and cold. I simply prepare a drink with this spice powder whenever i was suffering from both sore throat and cough.Trust me with frequent intaking of this concoction will helps you very much and they works wonder anytime of the day. Simply add a teaspoon of this powder in a boiling water, bring it to boil, strain the water and drink with palm sugar, and see how wonderfully they works while you are suffering from the cough and cold.

One of my recent favourite is this dry amla, my mom got them during her last trip to India from an organic shop.No problem, if you dont get dry amla pieces and dry ginger, you can make this drink with fresh ginger and fresh amla pieces, just crush both and bring them to boil with crushed black peppercorns and coriander seeds, your concoction is ready to drink.Sending this home remedy to my event  Healthy Diet - Fat Free Recipes guest host by Dhanish and to WTML guest hosted by Asiya, event by Gayathri.

What a delicious idea for coffee, although I don't know where I'd find amla here. I love dry ginger powder, though, and add it to all sorts of things, including tea.

This is really good. I know about termaric powder but its good that dry amla and dry ginger are also useful for cooking any variety. I will include it in easy food recipe ideas for instant mixture.
