Clean and cut the ginger into small pieces. Grind the nellikka and ginger pieces together in a mixie.
Filter the ground mix into a jug/glass vessel.
Add 1-2 teaspoon salt into this filtered water. Also add 2-3 teaspoon of sugar into this mix and stir it well.
Cut one lemon into two pieces and add the juice into the water as shown below. Stir the mix well. The squash is ready.
The salt, ginger and sugar can be added subject to the requirement.Change the squash into a bottle and keep it in the fridge. As and when required, take some squash, add required water and serve. This is a good healthy drink for diabetic people and others as well.
Myself, Sobha Kesavan, a retired Accountant in a MNC based in Delhi, where I was staying for 26 years. Afterwards, moved to Bangalore and stayed there for about 4 years and then shifted to my native place ( in Thrissur district), Kerala, along with my husband. My two sons and both daughters-in-law are working out of Kerala as Software Engineers.
I have immense passion for gardening and have been doing it since my stay in Delhi and most of
the ingredients (vegetables) used in my recipes are home grown. I am interested in cooking mostly North Indian and South Indian cuisines. The recipes shared in pachakam.com from my end would definitely tickle your taste buds.
I will be always looking forward for your valuable feedbacks or suggestions as there is always room for improvement.
