We live in times where we have to survive the frequent waves of COVID19 infection. In recent times it has resurfaced. Survival is possible when our immune system is as strong as a mountain. When the immune system gets compromised, we suffer from cold, cough, sore throat, fever, headache, and whatnot.

Every other person suffers from some or the other symptom, the most common being a sore throat. And as we all know, it is one of the symptoms of COVID19. Many remedies are available for sore throat, one of which is the powerful decoction (kahda). Its ingredients have medicinal properties that will soothe the sore throat. The kahda will also be a treat to the taste buds.

Let us first go through the ingredients which are readily available in the kitchen and have great importance in Ayurveda.
