candied ginger sugarfree one pot one shot: ginger for nausea relief


One ginger and so many benefits!!
This surely puts ginger in the category of therapeutic herbs for;


  • cold
  • cough
  • nausea relief
  • motion sickness
  • morning sickness
  • travel blues
  • sore throat
  • gastric problems
  • acidity
Promotes Digestion
Besides being predominantly used as a spice for Indian cooking, Ginger can be consumed fresh, dried, or in powdered form. Ginger benefits health in more ways than one. The phenolic compounds in anti-inflammatory ginger can help relieve gastrointestinal irritation while stimulating salivation and bile production. It helps suppression of gastric contractions when food flows through your GI tract. Studies are underway to look into the benefits of ginger as a preventive aid for colon cancer as well as constipation.

Eases Menstrual Pain
As ginger is a diaphoretic, it activates the sweat glands and promotes sweating, helping keep the body warm from within. This makes ginger beneficial to ward off winter blues.

Research reveals that ginger helps ease exercise induced-muscle pain as well as menstrual cramps for some women.

Thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, ginger can help treat inflammation and osteoarthritis symptoms.

Chemotherapy aid
An immensely beneficial aid for chemotherapy patients, ginger for nausea relief provides soothing effects for those fighting cancer.

A loved one is undergoing chemotherapy, and with God's grace and hubby dear's depth of knowledge, we have been able to minimize the chemo side effects for her. But that does not mean there are no adverse events. There still are minimal effects but compared to many other chemo patients, she has the minimum number of side effects. This fact was noted even by her chemo team. We are glad about it.
We would love to share her cancer treatment approach and therapies once she undergoes them successfully. There is still a long way to go. Fingers crossed.
sugarless ginger candy

Our efforts are paying off. I wish she gets better soon.

Here's the simple sugarless candied ginger recipe in one pot one shot:
1 cup- sliced ginger (I prefer thin slices)
1 cup- jaggery powder
2 tbps- water

How to make OPOS candied ginger sugarfree 


  • Scrap ginger cover.
  • Wash and slice it into thin pieces. I prefer to keep it thin for quicker drying of the candies. The thicker they are, the longer they will take to dry.

  • Take a 2-liter pressure cooker.
  • Add sliced ginger pieces.
  • Add jaggery powder on top of the pieces.
  • Pour 2 tbsp of water and cook for 15-20 whistles. 
  • If you sense a burning smell, turn off the stove immediately.
  • If the jaggery syrup looks watery and has not thickened, cook it for a few more minutes until the syrup thickens. You may choose prepare the candied ginger in an open vessel too.
  • When the syrup has thickened, your ginger candy is done.
  • Remove and strain in another vessel.
  • Place the candied ginger on a kitchen towel or tissue paper for drying.
  • I changed the tissue paper every day for 3 days.
  • My sugarfree candied ginger was ready in 3 days.

Enjoy !
The ginger candy tastes good as a medicine. The sweet coating makes it palatable for kids too, but once the sweet cover dissolves in your mouth, get ready for a spicy effect of ginger on your tongue!
I love it this way - my dad too likes my kinda candied ginger.
This ginger candy recipe is my gift to Balvinder Kaur Khera, who had asked for some home remedies for motion sickness for her princess.

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

Think of South Indian food, and idli, sambar, and dosa would strike your mind first of all! Isn't it?






















Yes, this is the quintessential south Indian menu that has become widely popular world over for its rich taste, unique flavors, and nutritional boost! Well, this is exactly what inspires most of us north Indians to cook south Indian food. I  must admit I love Chettinad cuisine, Malayali food, and of course, Tamil recipes.

Savor any recipe bursting with coconut flavor and you would want to have it again and again. At least, this is my experience! South Indian food has been instrumental in making me a coconut lover. Don't believe?

Taste food from south Indian cuisine and you would know it yourself. The best thing is south Indians make the most yummiest of food in the simplest of way while not tempering much with the nutritional portion.
