  • Filter and let it become warm. Mix honey (or jaggery/ palm sugar).



  • While roasting pepper, cover with a lid as it pops.
  • Add cumin after the pepper pops as cumin seeds tend to get roasted soon.

  • The filtered residue can be again boiled with water to get a lighter dose of kashayam.
  • As this is strong, just take one dose per day.
