Notes

To use fennel seeds and cumin seeds powder is necessary as they are good for digestion. Turmeric roots actually give warmth to respiratory system, to your body during winter season and there is medicinal use of it in cold and cough. Effect of turmeric roots should be balanced by using these spices and curd in this specific curry as fresh turmeric roots are more effective than turmeric powder. 
This curry is really good to consume twice or thrice during cold. But always remember it should be in small quantity because …..
