Kesariya Meva Milk Recipe – Winter Drink

Kesariya Meva milk

Kesariya Meva milk is my great grandmother’s treasured heirloom recipe. It is a delicious and healthy preparation and very effective remedy for cold, cough and body ache during the winter season. Turmeric (Haldi) has natural antibiotic properties and milk is a rich source of calcium. The combination of these two natural ingredients along with the goodness of dry nuts /dry fruits in this milk based power packed drink can keep diseases and infections at bay.
