Ginger is an anti-inflammatory with several health-friendly properties. While in India, we use ginger extensively during winters in our meals, I decided to use it differently. I wanted to make sweet ginger chutney so started surfing the world wide web for recipe.
Then I came across this ginger jam or spicy ginger chutney recipe from Bhojanarecipes.com. I made slight variation to the original recipe.
