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.
