I had been to India for my brother’s wedding. Did I mention that I had gone just for 5 days??? Ofcourse 5 days!!!! Just four days before my travel to India, I decided that I would do few episodes for Ner Ner Theneer program in Puthiya Thalaimurai channel. Initially, I was little confused whether I would be able to do it. I had already missed couple of opportunities in media when I was pregnant with my second child. This time, I thought I should not miss this wonderful opportunity.
The very next day I landed in India, I was ready for the shoot. Ohhh ho! I was so thrilled to be part of the Ner Ner Theneer Show. I had very little time to prepare for the shows because I had so many things going on, so I had less time to prepare.
The team was on time, and initially I was quite thrilled and anxious. The team made me feel very comfortable. They were very involved, supportive and helpful. I made this Thippili Tea as my first show and it came out well. I will talk about my successive tv shows for Ner Ner Theneer program in my coming posts.
My friends watched the show and said it had come out very well. The team did a wonderful job in making the show look outstanding. I have posted the video below and hope you all like it too. I would like to hear your feedback about this program as well as my cooking.
So, now lets talk about some of the health benefits of Thippili/Indian Long Pepper:
- Good for cold, cough and sore throat
- Weight loss and obesity
- Lung problems
Thippili Tea is very good for health, so try to take it at least once a week.
