To prepare this immunity boosting powder, you need organic turmeric powder (7 tbsp), cumin seeds (4 tbsp), coriander seeds (4 tbsp), fennel seeds (7 tbsp), dry ginger powder or saunth (2 tbsp), whole black pepper (2 tbsp), cinnamon powder (1/2 tbsp) and cardamom (3 tbsp).
Keep turmeric powder and dry ginger powder in a separate bowl. Do not roast them.
Lightly roast all the remaining ingredients on low flame. Be careful as the spices should not burn. Roast them till you get a nice aroma. Once roasted, allow them to cool. Now transfer them to a grinder and grind them to get powdery consistency.
Add turmeric and dried ginger to this powder. Store it in a steel or glass jar.
According to Coutinho, you can have 1/2 tsp of the powder with water, or add it as a seasoning to your food. It can be an alternative to garam masala.
Another way of including this powder in your diet is by adding 1/2 tsp of it to 1 tbsp of heated ghee. Mix it to form a paste and have it every morning.
If you are on medication or have an underlying health condition like diabetes or high blood pressure, do check with your doctor before having this powder.
