Ginger and Garlic are Miraculous Spices

Ginger is aromatic, pungent, and a bit spicy. It adds a special flavor and zest to any dish it's added to. It has very few calories, is a good source of antioxidants, and has a powerful bioactive compound called 'gingerol.' This rhizome helps in digestion, reducing nausea, and help fight the common cold and flu, to name a few benefits.

Garlic is a magical spice that has powerful medicinal properties. Roasted garlic has a captivating smell and flavor that acts as a taste booster in many curries and beverages. This spice is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. Garlic is enriched with protein, vitamins, iron, and minerals.

Yogurt or curds is the other major ingredient used in making this drink. It is a good source of animal protein. It has all the nutrients found in dairy foods.

Making this beverage is very easy. I made it in 10 minutes. It is a mild-spicy drink that you can use as a beverage or a side dish for plain rice.

This drink is known to reduce the gas problems in you. It also improves your digestion and induces appetite.

Now, let me share the detailed recipe with you.
