  1. Thank you for this very nice article.
    Can this recipe be used as a general cleansing tea ? Can we use this tea during ritu sandhi or seasonal change time and how many days to take this tea
    Also is there any diet to follow when this tea is consumed ?

  2. Have you got any information on seasonal ayurvedic regimen in northern Australia – Queensland. I am prodominent Vata with little Pitta

  3. Very helpful to know, thank you.

    How does this compare with soaking fennel seeds in water overnight and drinking with sugar/mishri in the morning?

    Does fennel have the same channel cleansing effect? Is it more or less cooling than coriander?

    Thank you,

      • This coriander soup is the best drink I have had perhaps in my whole life. I was looking for something nourishing and thirst quenching at the same time + preferably something sweet because I prefer sweet to anything with lime juice. I started having this just one week ago after reading this article, and I feel wonderful every morning after having it. It really helps. I am almost tempted to double the quantity, but I will resist the temptation since it is a real gift. I use freshly ground coriander powder although the picture above shows coriander in seed form (since I wasn’t sure what crushed seeds mean). Hope that’s okay. By any chance, is it okay to sip a little of this all day every now and then? I seem to be unable to fully quench my thirst with just plain water (thanks to the lifeless water in the municipal supplies), and this seems like it might help with that.

        Thank you,

  4. I’ve read that it’s useful in varicose veins and for heavy menstrual flow. Please write your opinion!If so, the dosage too

    • This drink in particular is not useful in varicose veins. It might help to some degree in heavy periods.

  5. I would like to know if this coriander drink can be sweetened with gur or honey instead of sugar as I am now trying to cut out white sugar from my diet.

    • honey is slightly hot in potency, hence it might not help in lowering the body heat as effectively as sugar.
      You can have it with jaggery or sugar candy powder in place of sugar.

  6. Hi Doctor,
    My 11 yrs old son has recently developed psoriasis. He always complains of sweaty palms and cannot tolerate even a little bit of spice. He is slightly overweight too. It seems to me that he has excessive Pitta. Will this drink help him with Psoriasis and all these other conditions I have mentioned? Is it advisable to give this drink to a child? Thankyou.
