Hi thanks for using Healthcaremagic ...
The cough developed could be due to reactive airway.Any irritation in the respiratory tree can cause Bronchospasm (construction of small airways)
Cough is the first sign of airway irritation .
Sometimes it will be relieved by its own or will have to give some inhalers.
Anti-allergic tablets can help in this situation....
Some of the ingredients must have caused the irritation....
Next time try to wear a mask while preparing the food.....

thank you....
