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.
