Kadha Making Video Step By Step Guide
Kadha is made in two different steps. In first step we made the kadha powder (Kadha masala) and then in next step we consume the kadha powder preferably in the form of hot drinks. First, we make Kadha (Masala) Powder and usually store it in a dry and cool place (at a temperature below 20°C). Then consume this kadha (masala) powder in different forms.
If you can make the kadha masala freshly everytime, that will be best. But if preparing everyday is not possible, then make it once in every 5/7 days. Keep the kadha masala in an airtight container. But never ever try to use the packaged readymade kadha masala powder, those are useless!

Even after making the kadha drink, mostly we reuse the staining residue of the kadha masala in foods. So that the whole goodness goes within the body. All the ingredients we are using are listed below with the links so that you can check them.
