Arrowroot milk | Koova Kachiyathu2020-07-17
Arrowroot milk or koova kachiyathu is a traditional drink of Kera la. It is a very good energy drink for kids and it contains lots of vitamins and minerals. Arrowroot has lots of medicinal benefits. It is good for digestive problems and urinary infection. Arrowroot also increases immunity power in kids. There are mainly two varieties of arrowroot wild arrowroot and normal arrowroot. Wild arrowroot has more medicinal power than normal arrowroot. My mother in law make arrowroot powder every year with wild arrowroot and make delicious drinks for us when we come for holidays.
We make koova kachiyathu daily during the month of Ramadan as it acts as a coolant for the body. I have used sugar for making this recipe but you can also use jaggery. There is a traditional ‘koova kachiyathu’ recipe with arrowroot powder, jaggery, and tender coconut which we make for ‘thiruvathira’. This arrowroot milk is an easy to make recipe and I am sure you all will like this recipe. I have also made a video of this recipe. Please watch and subscribe to our channel.
