I worked as a banker for 17 years, and now I work as a freelance writer. I love staying fit and cooking tasty and healthy meals.

Making a Ginger and Garlic Drink

Making this aromatic drink is very easy. It can be prepared in 10 minutes. You have to grind a few ginger pieces, 1–2 garlic cloves, a small chili, a pinch of cumin seeds, and a tablespoon of grated coconut in a mixer grinder. Mix it with a glass of moderate sour curd or yogurt and some salt. Add sufficient water to bring it to drinking consistency. This drink is now ready to serve.

This beverage can be sipped straight away, or you can drink it chilled.
