Kashaya powder recipe - Kashaya powder is an aromatic powder used to make herbal drink called kashaya which is a healthy, popular and favorite drink of Coastal Karnataka. People who avoid to drink tea and coffee prefer to consume this kashaya. Some people who suffer from acidity due to excess intake of tea or coffee, replace their drink by kashaya. I often make kashaya powder in small quantity and make kashaya out of it. To retain the fresh fragrance of the powder intact, it is better to prepare this powder in small quantity. Roasting some ingredients doesn't take much of a time, so preparing the powder in small quantity is worth an effort. My next post will be how to make kashaya with this powder.
