Dr Rupy Aujla says this is a bit of a shared family recipe. A gingery, spicy cup of broth that he always makes whenever he feels slightly under the weather; it will certainly perk you up!
It has a rich collection of plant chemicals known for their anti-microbial properties, such as garlic, onion, ginger and cinnamon.
Dr Rupy swears by it for coughs and colds. Simple to put together and intensely warming.
