Deepavali Legium/Medicine


Deepavali legium is a kind of medicine which is good for digestion.I hope you all are celebrated the deepavali nicely,by eating lot of sweets and savouries.We can have this legium before/after food,but having in empty stomach is more effective.I can’t get certain ingredients here.So i used whatever ingredients i have in my hand.If you find these ingredients please try this,it is useful not only deepavali time we can have it weekly once also…


50gm dry ginger(sukku)
50gm alpinia calcarata(sitharathai)
50gm  kandanthipili(kadanthippili)
1 nutmeg(jadikkai)
100gm ajwain(omam)
200gm black pepper(milagu)
50gm cumin seeds (Jeeragam)
1 cloves (Krambu)
2 cardamom(elakkai)
1inch turmeric(manjal)
500 gm  jaggery
1 tbsp gingelly oil
1 tbsp ghee
1 tsp honey


Dry fry sitharathai, kandanthipili,jadikkai,omam,milagu,jeeragam,cardamom,turmeric,sukku and  cloves one by one and make it to a fine powder, sieve it well and keep it aside.
Heat the fry pan and make Jaggery syrup (Jaggery should be in equivalent ratio with that of the powdered ingredients)to a sticky level and not to the level of string consistency.
Now add the sieved powder to the jaggery syrup and stir continuously keep adding gingelly oil and ghee little by little till the paste does not stick to the pan. A small amount of honey may be added to enhance the taste.
Stir well,then slowly the colour will change into dark brown to black colour and oil also comes at the top is the correct stage to switch off the stove.
Remove from heat and allow to cool.Here is the legium is ready.You can have a tsp of legium in empty stomach is good for health.
