I have learned this recipe from my domestic helper.She used to prepare this whenever she feels sick and got the ingredients blended in my blender. So I also learn this and started preparing it whenever we have cold climate. It is really good for kids also, as the ingredients in this are good for digestion and helps in clearing the blockages in the throat. First we need to prepare masala and then make charu or rasam.
