Method of Preparation
The ingredients 1 and 2 are coarsely powdered and kept in a vessel. The specified quantity of water is added and mixed with the powder. Haritki is bundled in a piece of cloth which is immersed by suspension, as in dola yantra. The mixture is boiled till the haritki is soft. The bundle is then removed. The haritki and jaggery are added to the decoction and boiled to the required paka, at which stage taila and the fine powders (drugs 7 to 14) are added. By this process, the finished product may not be preserved for a long period.
A modified form is, now, adopted to facilitate preservation over a longer period. In this method, the seeds from the boiled haritki are removed, the pulp dried well and powdered after the required paka is done, the powdered haritki along with taila and the powders of drugs 7 to 14 are added. ½ to 1 haritki and 12 to 24 gm of leha
