Ginger Juice for Digestion

IMG_6097

Ginger is widely recommended as an aid for good digestion.  It is a commonly used spice in Asian cooking. It is also used for preventing motion and morning sickness up to a certain extent.

If you do not use ginger in your daily cooking, then this juice is a great way to get some into your system. It has a sharp taste from the ginger, with a hint of lemon and some sweetness from the sugar.

Ingredients:

Ginger-----2cups(washed&cut)

Sugar/Jaggery------2cups

Lemon juice-----1cup

Method:

Grind  the ginger  nicely with two cups of water in a blender.

Squeeze the ground ginger and extract the juice.

Filter it and keep it aside for 15 to 20 minutes.

Transfer the juice to another vessel and discard the white residue.

Take a deep pan and pour about 1/4 cup of juice and the sugar.

Heat it till the sugar dissolves and the syrup is little thickened.

Remove from fire and add the remaining juice and mix well.
