Making Ginger and Garlic Drink

Making this aromatic drink is very easy. It can be prepared in 10 minutes. You have to grind together a few ginger pieces, 1-2 garlic cloves, a small chili, a pinch of cumin seeds, and a table spoon 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.
