This is a delicious drink that makes a simple, nourishing and tasty meal. If properly made and consumed regularly it will help tremendously with both digestion and absorption in the stomach and intestines.


  • 1 cup fresh yoghurt*
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tsp ground fresh ginger
  • 1 sprig (about 10 leaves) crumbled fresh or dried curry leaves
  • Coriander leaves – half a handful of fresh leaves
  • Pinch of salt

Directions to make:

  • Mix water, yoghurt, ginger, and salt to taste and whisk until the cream breaks and foam forms
  • Chop other ingredients into small pieces and add to this mixture and stir thoroughly

To serve:

Either drink as a pre-digested drink or mix over rice and mash together to make it like a light rice porridge. Serve as it is or you may choose to have a little Indian pickle on the side (so long as it is correct for your Dosha).

Dosha guidelines:

  • For those of a Kapha constitution use goat yoghurt and you could also use some chilli to make it spicier. Replace rice with millet.
  • Pitta can serve with either rice or millet

*Those familiar with making yoghurt at home can use fresh home-made yoghurt
