Chukku Kaapi is herbal medicine for sore throat, cough and cold, mild fever and nasal congestions. My son is having cold and cough. So I made it light so as to make him drink. Here the climate is getting changed so have to make this twice or thrice a week. If you have cold or sore throat try this first and then go for the tablet.
