So in case you are looking for such an immunity-boosting drink which is easy to make, we have you covered. Here is astrologer and relationship counsellor, Dr Jai Madaan, sharing a quick recipe made out of kitchen condiments that have been known to boost immunity and also have other health benefits.

She mentioned how the mixture can be preserved and consumed each day for immunity as well as for skin health and weight loss.

Here is the recipe.


1/4tsp – Turmeric
1/4tsp – Cinnamon powder
1tsp – Coriander powder
1tsp – Kala jeera or cumin powder
1tsp – Khus khus or poppy seeds (Helps prevent the feeling of lethargy and tiredness and helps in sleep)
1tsp – Black pepper powder
1tsp – Basil leaves or tulsi leaves powder or fresh leaves
1tsp – Dry ginger powder
1tsp – Cardamom powder
1 – Bay leaf (optional)
4 cups – Water


*Mix all the ingredients together.
*Take a steel pan and boil four cups of water. Put the mixture in the pan. Let it boil for 15 minutes. Once it cools down, keep the mixture in a glass jar only (not plastic). One can also add black salt or kala namak and some lemon juice before consuming to enhance the taste.

What if you don’t have all the ingredients?

Don’t put anything you are allergic to. She advices to add only those ingredients that are readily available in your kitchen.

How to have it?

Warm the mixture a little and drink it. It not only boosts your immunity but cleanses your skin and helps in weight loss as well. Don’t think of it is a bitter kaada but a delicious and yummy immunity-boosting drink, she said.
