Karkidaka Kanji – Relevance of karkadaka kanji

Karkidaka kanji is a famous dietary form of medicated preparation that is to be taken in Karkidakom to boost the immunity and thereby regain the sharirabala of the individual. In early days, people used to take rest as there was no job (heavy rainfall) during this time. So they had taken medicinal herbs and prepared their diet (karkidakam kanji) with that and found that it was highly effective in regaining their strength .But now this has turned out to be a flourished business.

Karkidakam - Karkkidakkam

Karkidakam-Karkidakkam – Diet to be followed during Karkadakom

 Why in kanji form ? – Oushatha  Kanji

Kanji is the diet that is most satmya to the keralites . Moreover, Kanji (peya) is indicated in kshut (hunger), trshna (thirst), glani (tiredness), daurbalya (weakness), kukshiroga (abdominal discomfort), jwara (fever). It promotes anulomana to mala & vata (prevents constipation), deepana pachana (agni dipti).

If it is used in any other form it actually will not give this much result. Eg: if used in kasaya form, it may cause stambhana (due to the “kasaya”rasa) thereby causing vata vitiation.

As this is used in kanji form (a dietary form which is satmya) more quantity will be taken as compared than other forms of medication (therby acts as ahara & aushada at the same time).

Also, this being in this particular form can be prepared by any keralite very easily.
