1″ ginger


Crush ginger and pepper separately in a mortar and pestle; keep aside.

Pour milk in a small saucepan. Add the crushed ginger and pepper; bring it to a boil.

Now, add turmeric; stir and simmer for 4-5 minutes; allow it to cook till the raw taste of the turmeric goes.

Remove from the heat; filter and pour this healthy drink in a cup. Enjoy!!!

– can add jaggery or palm sugar if required

– can use any type of milk for this preparation
