Mudakathan Keerai is a herb very commonly used in Ayurvedic treatments for Rheumatic Arthritis, Dysentery, Joint Pains etc. However it is not very commonly available. It is not regularly used in every household due to its bitter taste. It is good to include this herb in your diet at least once in a month. You can make this kashayam with fresh leaves or mudakathan keerai powder.
