kashaya powder recipe

Kashaya powder or kashaya pudi recipe explained with step by step pictures and a video. Learn how to make home made ayurvedic drink powder or herbal drink powder.

I have explained 2 types of kashaya powder recipes here. The first type of kashaya powder is prepared using 13 herbs and spices. This kashaya powder or herbal drink powder is prescribed by an ayurvedic doctor and tastes very good. But you need some special and rare ingredients to prepare this. Whereas the second type is quite simple. It is prepared using less number of ingredietns, which are commonly available in your kitchen.

For the first type, all ingredients are sun dried and ground into fine powder to prepare tasty kashaya powder or kashaya pudi. But if you do not have access to sunlight then roast them under medium flame for few minutes. The second type is prepared by roasting the ingredients. Kashaya powder is very healthy as compared to coffee or tea. Once you prepare kashaya powder, preparing kashaya is very easy. Boil Water along with jaggery, add the kashya powder and brew it for few minutes. Finally add in boiled milk to prepare tasty kashaya or kashayam.

This Kashaya powder ingredietns and quantity are given by a popular ayurvedic doctor. How ever if you can't get one or two ingredients, then leave them and prepare kashaya powder using rest of the ingredinets.

I prefer home made masala powders and I have already posted udupi rasam powder, Bisi bele bath powder, vangi bath powder, Mysore rasam powder, Sambar powder, biriyani masala powder and Puliyogare powder recipes. Do not forget to check them as well.

I have made a video on this recipe(type2 kashaya powder) with Kannada narration, which I have embedded it below. Kindly have a look.
