My earliest memories of Chyawanprash are that of staring at a spoon of this gooey brown paste, that my sister and I were forced to have every day; my father would be standing on the side somewhere telling us how he grew up eating it too and extolling the benefits of this superfood.
Frankly, I really disliked the thick odd-smelling “immunity-booster” that we downed every day. I know my mum was trying to protect her children from the various diseases and make them strong but we never took it without a fight. I know a lot of you know exactly what I’m talking about!!
