Vati and Gutika Kalpana.
A Sunday is a great day to make Eladi Vati.
Vati is a preparation where different medicinal substances are used to make tablets (vati) and pills (gutika). This is done either by cooking the powdered herbs with jaggery or guggulu or without cooking by macerating the powder with any liquid like honey and guggulu and then rolled into pills. They are made of one or more drugs of a plant, animal or mineral origin.
At Lakshmi’s kitchen we have prepared Eladi Vati/ Eladi Gutika
Ela/cardamon, tejapatra/bay leaves, dalchini/ cinnamon, pippali/ long pepper, sita/sugar, yasthimadhu/ licorice, dried dates, grapes and honey.
