My mom used to prepare this Milagu Manjal Paal during winter to prevent catching up the cold, when we get the initial symptoms like sore throat and cough. Turmeric Milk is one of the easiest options to ease the irritation of cold & sore throat, as Turmeric has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. And, pepper is a known medicine to cure throat infection and a blood purifier. Slow boiling the spices in the milk brings out the flavor of the drink. Make your common cold and sore throat go away with the Indian Ayurvedic Turmeric Milk. Drink better, Feel Better!!!!!
