Inji sorasam recipe | Ginger lemon drink

Inji Sorasam, is a drink made with ginger, coriander seeds and cumin seeds, generally given to aid digestion, after a heavy meal. I have posted Ginger ale recipe some time back and mentioned about inji sorasam in that post. We can find this Inji sorasam in our refrigerator always, as my patti always stocks this up. As she was aging, she feels discomfort in her tummy after a heavy food. Especially after festival food it is a must for her. Yesterday, after hogging on the pori urundais and verkadalai urundai a lot i had a bad headache. While talking to amma, she told, pori and kadalai is Pitham and told me to have this inji sorasam. I made that yesterday according to her instructions and i found my headache had drastically come down after that. So wanted to share the recipe of inji sorasam with you all.
