Sore throat has been mentioned as a prodromal symptom of common cold in Ayurveda. It has been described as pinprick like pain in the throat. Vata-Kapha are usually involved in causation of sore throat.

Ajowan seeds 
Black pepper
Cinnamon bark
Fenugreek seeds
Table salt

Common Recipes:
Soak two teaspoonfuls of ajowan seeds in cold water. Add a pinch of common salt. Using this infusion as a common gargle substantially eases the acute sore throat. 

Coarsely powder the cinnamon bark. Boil a teaspoonful of this powder in water. Strain the extract and add a pinch of black pepper and a teaspoonful of honey . Consuming this decoction every three hours during the day cures a sore throat.

Two tablespoons of fenugreek seeds should be added to a litre of cold water and simmered on a gentle flame. This should be allowed to cool to a temperature that could be tolerated by the buccal cavity. Strain this mixture and gargle with it several times a day. This cures a sore throat.

Liquorice is a well recognised remedy for sore throat. Put a small piece of raw liquorice in the mouth and chew it regularly. It gives a soothing effect to the sore throat.
