About Recipe:
Kashaya made out of Amruthaballi, a herb with myriad of potential medicinal qualities. Highly valued in Ayurveda for its detoxifying, rejuvenating, immune-boosting, and anti-rheumatic properties. I was introduced to this by my mother, who takes keen interest in Gardening. This kashaya includes many beneficial ingredients that help in overall better health.
