The past few weeks have been all about season change accompanied by the flu! So in this blog, I would like to share a few recipes that will go well with the flu and exam panic!!!
Ingredients: Fresh mint leaves, lemon slices, ginger, honey, water, and tea leaves.
Method: Wash 5-6 mint leaves and add them to a cup of water with a little bit of grated ginger. Bring this to a boil and add tea leaves just as it begins to boil. Let the colour and flavour of the tea diffuse into the drink a bit, then turn off the flame.
Using a sieve, pour this into a mug, add a lemon slice and some honey, and stir. And that is it; you have a warm tea that will help with your sour throat and cold!
Ingredients: Lemon juice, coriander leaves (cilantro), carrots, french beans, cabbage, ginger, garlic, salt, cornflour, butter and water.
Method: Place a vessel on medium flame and add a tbsp of butter to it. Once it melts, to it add some finely chopped garlic and ginger. Let the two turn redish-brown. Now add diced carrots, french beans and finely chopped cabbage. Let this cook.
While it cooks, add a tbsp of cornflour to water in a separate bowl and make a paste. Now, back to the vessel, add the cornflour paste, plenty of coriander and lemon juice as per your taste. Mix everything well and add water – as per the consistency you like!
Bring this to a boil, and that’s it! A nice warm bowl of soup is ready!
I hope you find the time to try these, and if you do, I hope you enjoy them! In the meantime, take care! Thank you for reading!
PS – these recipes are no substitute for medicines but will help soothe the discomfort!
