Inji Thogayal


 The third of the roots that we will be using is this humble ginger. In our cuisine we use it in many recipes to enhance the flavour or for its medicinal properties. One such is this Inji Thogayal which helps in digestion. It is perfect when paired with curd rice but can be had with dosai too.
