Few Minute Wonders For Relief From Cough : Flattened or Pressed Rice/ Poha/ Avil

Written By FewMinute Wonders on Monday, March 10, 2014 | 5:47 PM

It is that time of the year when most people start to cough with flu like symptoms and sometimes this persistent cough does not seem to leave us alone. If no cough syrup helps, what does one do to get some relief from it. Poha/ Beaten rice or Avil is the remedy. This was a very important information that Pujashri Mathioli Saraswathi or Sri Akka as we refer to her, shared in her speech last year and I am very thankful to her for this little home remedy. Usually, I have a tough time when I catch a cold or cough. It takes forever for me to get rid of it. This time, I felt truly blessed that I was able to get quick relief having Avil. Every time I start to cough I had some avil and slowly chewed on it and soon the cough disappeared. I see a lot of people visiting my website for cough remedies and I thought it would be good for me to share this awesome home remedy on this blog.


Poha/ Beaten Rice/ Avil - 1 tsp. 

Please 1/2 tsp at a time of this poha on your tongue and slowly chew on it. Can repeat as its just rice. 

Note: I found that the thin variety works much better than the thick one. 


  1. This is something different and new tips for me, thanks Srimathi will try out definitely.

  2. I too have same kind of cough, it takes weeks to cure, thx will definitely try this remedy
