    The Guardian newspaper (UK) borrowed the title of one of Gabriel Garcia Marquez novels "Love in the time of Cholera" - replaced Cholera with Corona Virus, in the headline of story on the Valentine's day goings on aboard the Quarantined Cruise Ship Diamond princess.

    During the winter (influenza) season, we want to have an extra boost to our immune system to fight off bacterial/viral infections.

    In this season of Covid-19 pandemic, this is all the more critical. Many of the foods that we cook in desi kitchens are already shown to strengthen our immune system. [ I am resisting the urge to link a whole bunch of journal articles here ]

    Ginger-garlic paste, Turmeric, Fenugreek, Cumin, Green/Black teas, Cloves-Cardamum-Cinnamon (aka garam masala or 3C's) are all things we could be eating everyday instead of now and then. How to Boost Your Immunity: The 8 Best Herbs + Foods | Vital Plan

    Moringa Genus: A Review of Phytochemistry and Pharmacology
    Last week I made a sambar with drumsticks (from a can).

    If you are curious about the science behind whatever it is, you can go to this site Home - PMC - NCBI , put your word or phrase in the search window, and go for it. When you read something, add salt to taste.
