Mooligai Kashayam / Herbal Concoction

Its Thursday again and it calls for some organic recipes. Being very weak and dull due to bad Cold and Flu which I contracted two days before, I thought its best time to share the Herbal Concoction which we normally consume during such illness. Not only my Grandma, my Mother in law as well recommends this rather allopathy medicines. So its more a family recipe and here I have enhanced it with Lemon Grass which is not a part of the original recipe of my grandma. I have carefully selected all the ingredients and almost 80% of them being home grown, including Pepper.
