About Candied Ginger Recipe

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.
