About this Recipe

A healthy and refreshing drink, with the goodness of jaggery, imli, ginger and edible camphor and can be had hot or chilled. This herbal drink is made as a part of bhog during ‘Rama Navami’, a Hindu festival. It is also being served in South Indian weddings especially after the main function ‘Muhurtham’. A wonderful option to serve in parties as an appetizer or as a welcome drink.

Ingredients & Quantity
  • Imli- a small gooseberry sized, soaked in1 cup of warm water for 15 mins.
  • Jaggery- a large lemon sized.
  • Dry Ginger Powder Saunth Powder- 1 tsp
  • Elaichi Powder- 1 tsp
  • Edible Camphor – a small pinch
How to cook?
  1. Add a cup of water to the soaked imli and extract imli water. Boil it for a minute or two along with jaggery.
  2. Remove from flame and add powdered dry ginger, elaichi and edible camphor. Adjust water as per the taste.
  3. Serve hot or chilled.
Notes
  • Instead of imli, we can use lemon juice also. But, I have sticked to the authentic method of preparing paanagam in my family.
