Karpooravalli Kashayam is an excellent home remedy for cold and cough. Kashayam is the term used in TamilNadu by our ancestors to treat cold, cough, fever, headache etc. I have already posted a different version of Karpooravalli Kashayam prepared with Thulasi andVetrialai, do check it out as well.  Kashayam is usually prepared by boiling water with herbs and boiled until the water reduces to certain extent. Do try out this kashayam and take it when you have cold & cough.
