I have seen in many tv serials where they show kadha as a very tasteless thing but it’s not true. where actor act as if they are drinking something really bad. It tastes good trust me it’s not bitter or something like that.😅

This kadha is also natural home remedy for mensural cramps or you can drink it if your periods are late.

It is a cure for many things but remember not to drink it in large quantities as spices are hot in nature and anything taken more than needed can cause harm.
