Indian 'toddy' helps sickies get to sleep
Whenever I had a cold or a sore throat, my father made this for me to drink before bed (one of his many Indian home remedies). I was asleep within minutes, without fail.
Warm 1 cup of milk with a dash of cardamom, powdered ginger, turmeric, and sugar or honey to taste. If you're feeling generous, add a pinch of saffron. Serve in a favorite mug.
