Spicy ginger curry

The ginger curry is a perfect blend of sweet, sour and spicy flavours. Since ginger helps digestion and gastrointestinal irritations, this can be served with a heavy meal. You can also use this as a pickle.

The curry will stay fresh for a longer period since it contains tamarind. Jaggery is added to balance all the flavours. You can have a plateful of rice with a single spoon of ginger curry.
