Ginger root is a hot, fragrant spice widely used in Asia. It is used fresh in all almost all of Indian cooking and can be used in it's dry powdered form. Apart from the ginger I use to make scrumptious curries, I like use it to make myself a hot cup of tea with just ginger. It does not require any special tools or skills. It is great in treating colds and is great for digestion too. I usually add ginger root to boiling water and allow it to simmer for sometime before I serve t. But, this specific recipe, needs no boiling or simmering, yet tastes great. It will be my go-to drink during winters.
