Because Ahalya is having a bit of a cough and cold, I offered her a little coriander seed tea as her 56th ingredient the other day.
I made sure the tea was mild and gave her very little because I wanted to see if there was some sort of reaction. She seems to be fine so far.
I made the brew by lightly toasting the coriander seeds and then boiling it for about 5 minutes.
Coriander seed is know to remedy the commoncold and relieve its symptoms. It also helps reduce throat irritation and inflammation and, muscle and joint pain.
UPDATE: my little one loves koththamalli now and it’s easy because no fuss during colds or the cough to make her drink it.
