Today i am going to share with  you  a Home remedy.It's really  a good remedy for cough..At the starting stage itself have this "Chukku-jeera choornam" (dried ginger-cumin powder),you will get a good relief.
Usually our grandparents have these kind of so many home remedies. I always remeber when grandma was with us she used to give such kind of medicines and we hardly go to the doctor's place. The best part of these remedies are they doesn't have  any side effects and we can make these medicines at our home itself.
For preparing the choornam what u have to do is just make a nice powder of the following ingredients . As per the following measurement you can prepare  6 tsp of powder.change the quantity according to your requirements.

Cumin seed : 2 tsp
Dried Ginger: medium size
Make a nice powder of the 3 ingredients.Use the Mortar and pestle.
Have 1 tsp every 6 hours daily..
You can keep it in an airtight container for 2-3 weeks.
