Candied Ginger

Just like sweets and namkeen (savory) snacks are in demand for festivals, mouth freshener which we call, it mukhwas, is also very much needed after having too many sweets or salty or even regular dinner. I just love mukhwas, after diner,  mouth freshner, be it Indian or any other. Just love to munch on it.   Sometimes we think that some items are very hard to cook or make but when we do it , it's like piece of cake. If its not came out perfect crystalised ginger then  I should have make pickle out of it and use it but didn't have to do that because this comes out beautiful. Once this batch is done , have to make another. I got very nice ginger this time and really wanted to use it different form and this is a perfect way to use it.  so here it is

Ingredients :

1 cup peeled and thinly sliced ginger
3 cups water
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp. sugar extra to coat

Method:

In a big pan, bring water to boil.
Add the ginger and sugar and cover the pan.
Simmer it for five minutes.
Remove from heat and let it sit in the water for 30 minutes.
Heat the oven to 200 F.
Place the ginger slices in pan. Keep it in the oven till ginger is almost dry but still chewy.
let it cool.
If you like sprinkle the sugar on ginger so it coats.
Enjoy it as it is or in desserts.
You don't need to use sugar, you can use sugar substitute also.
Inspired from here.

  5. Piece of cake is not easy for me to make, so I reserve my comment. That said, I definitely agree that the candid ginger can be easily replicated. Much loved as a mouth refreshener and to munch over.
