Chukku Podi/Dry Ginger Powder



This powder is a home remedy for sore throat, cold and cough. I got this recipe from my MIL, she makes it very often. Now I too do the same here. You can keep this for months if stored in air tight container.
Ingredients
Dry Ginger/Chukku: 100gm
Cardamom : 50gms
Cumin/Jeerakam: 75gms
Black pepper: 15-20gms
Kalkandam/sugar crystal: 500gms
Method of Preparation
In a blender add dry ginger, cardamom pods, cumin and black pepper.
Blend it to powder.
Sieve this and blend again and sieve it and keep aside.
Coarsely powder the sugar crystal and add to the powdered mix.
Mix this well.
Store in an air tight container.
