Jadoo Ka Mishran – Method 2

I’ve been making this concoction as a home remedy/relief for cough for kids and adults since the past 4-5 years. My husband referred to this as “Jaadu ka mishran” (Magic Potion) when giving to kids to get them excited, and the name has stuck.

Ingredients –

  • Freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Honey
  • Ginger juice (Grate ginger and squeeze out the juice. Filter)
  • Cloves
  • Fennel seeds
  • Black Peppercorn
  • Cinnamon Stick
  • Tulsi (holy basil) leaves

Note that I’ve added on Fenugreek Seeds, Turmeric Root and Ajwain (carom seeds) in the batches I make now.


Boil Cloves, Fennel seeds, Black Peppercorn, Cinnamon Stick and Tulsi leaves (Fenugreek Seeds, Turmeric Root and Ajwain) in a little water. Let it steep for a few minutes, longer the better. Filter the water.


Mix all the ingredients – Freshly squeezed lemon juice, Honey, Ginger juice and Cloves, Fennel seeds, Black Peppercorn, Cinnamon Stick & Tulsi Water.


Store in a jar and refrigerate. I make small batches (as shown) which usually lasts for about 1 cycle.
We give this one spoon at a time a few times a day for cough relief.


Tip: Don’t throw away the herbs and spices after filtering the water out. Steep it again in water for making masala chai!
