In the past, when medical facilities were limited, people sought for home remedies. They developed treatments, temporary or permanent, using simple, natural household ingredients. Not only are they inexpensive, they have no side effects too.
To me home remedies stand synonymous to grandmothers – simple, but wise. What was known to the older generation of
Ginger – 4 inch piece
Coriander seeds – 2 tbsp
Cumin seeds – 2 tsp
Lemon – 1 or 2
Grind ginger, coriander seeds and cumin seeds together with 2 cups of water. Strain the liquid and add salt, sugar and lemon juice. Adjust ingredients according to your taste. Refrigerate this for 30 minutes. The top layer of the liquid will be clear while the chalky layer has deposited down under. Carefully strain the clear liquid and discard the murky liquid. I don’t peel the ginger as we strain the pulp.
You can also serve them mixed with sparkling water.
