Milagu Paal – Therapeutic Milk

Carolina Cooking310Turmeric Milk

Also known as: Milagu Paal, Spiced Milk, Pepper Milk. Hot Therapeutic Milk.

Whether you have a head ache or sore throat, there is always a simple remedy available in your kitchen shelf! And every Indian family has their own formula to treat the minor health issues.  Well, while most of it could be just mid wives tales, yet there are some mind blowing ideas…on which the Doctors vouch by.

And if you are like me, show up at doctor’s place, only when you’re really really forced into…then this stiff drink is for you. When flu season was around, this therapeutic milk made me feel so better…now I could swear on it:)

I believe the bio-chemical ‘curcumin’ plays a key role in fighting inflammation! With too many publications these days…all about turmeric’s effect on cancer cells, and much more…it only makes more sense to include this humble coloring agent quite often.

This recipe goes to Priya Mitharwal’s event : Healthy Me & Healthy Us



  • Whole milk 1 cup
  • Sugar 1 or 1 1/2 spoon
  • Turmeric powder 1 pinch
  • Ground black pepper less than a quarter spoon


  1. Add all the above said ingredients to milk…bring it to boil.
  2. Serve as a bed-time drink. I wouldn’t object if you choose to drink during the day:)
