Kapha – People who have prominent kapha dosha can have kadha 2-3 times in a day with moderate amount of ingredients in it.
In fact, people who have kapha body type will feel better after having kadha as they are ones more prone to viral illnesses, which kadha can cure.
Pitta – People with pitta body type should not have kadha more than once in a day. These people should also make sure not to have kadha empty stomach or during the mid-day. It’s best for such people to consume kadha in the evening.
Vata – People with vata body type can have kadha two times in a day. These people can also use some ghee in kadha to avoid dryness in the body.
Note: Per serving of kadha should not be more than 50ml. You can put 100 ml of water with ingredients, wait for it to boil down to 50 ml and then cool down kadha a bit before consuming it.
