What is Shunti Coffee (Chukku Coffee)?
When you feel yourself getting sick with a sore throat, or just have a nagging cough, it’s easy to reach for that box of tissues. While many people find that over-the-counter remedies can ease their symptoms, these drugs can sometimes cause unpleasant side effects. A better solution might be something right under your nose—your spice cabinet! Just a teaspoon of Shunti Coffee (also known as Sukku / Chukku / Ginger Coffee) has warming properties far better than those pills you pop.
Shunti Coffee or Chukku Kaapi or Ginger Coffee is an easy and natural home remedy to relieve cold and cough symptoms. It has been used traditionally in South India to treat the common cold and cough for centuries. This spicy and sweet beverage’s aroma opens up nasal blocks and provide instant relief from throat infections.
Research has proven that ginger helps clear congestion and brings some warmth to your body to make you feel better. The turmeric works as a anti-septic and anti-inflammatory. The Palm Jaggery provides a sweet sensation and offsets the strong and pungent nature of the ginger.

Health Benefits of Ginger
One of ginger’s benefits is its ability to soothe upset stomachs. Ginger reduces inflammation in our bodies, which is why it’s often used to treat joint pain. It’s also been used throughout history as a treatment for nausea and vomiting, flatulence, menstrual cramps, arthritis pain and bronchitis. In addition to treating symptoms associated with common health problems, ginger has also been known to help prevent heart attacks, lower cholesterol levels in our bodies and ease headaches.
