Lemon Ginger Concentrate

Come summer and we all start looking for coolers. There’s nothing that beats a cool glass of our own Nimbu Paani. J  And when it’s mixed with a dash of ginger, it makes it yummier. I still remember our childhood days when at the start of summer mom used to buy a packet of Rasna, make juice and pour the concentrate in bottles. When guests or someone comes in summer, the concentrate was poured in desired consistency, mixed with water and juices were ready to be served.

This or Mor (Buttermilk with a dash of curry leaves and ginger) used to be our favorite drink in summer. Buttermilks are the best option alongside lemon juice in summer. No bottle of cola or aerated drinks comes closer to the home made juices. J

Today I am sharing the recipe of the concentrate hope you try and like it.

Hi This is my chance to introduce myself. I am Parvathi, the author/owner of this space. I blog here about recipes that are simple yet tasty. I try to improvise on recipes without compromising on taste. Cooking is my passion. Though I am not very perfect, I love the imperfections and as they say “there’s always scope of better”. I like to follow that. I believe there’s a story for each recipe and the way it is developed. Also creativity is the secret ingredient of cooking. My inspiration for cooking comes from my mom. As cliched as it sounds, for me she is the best cook. 🙂 Cooking for me is a stress buster. Hoping this space help you too whip some amazing dishes and earn praises from your loved ones.
