Lemongrass chai or tea🌱 ☕️
Making lemongrass tea using fresh lemongrass from my garden 🙂
Although lemongrass growing all around in my garden, this is my first time making lemongrass tea.
I thought it might taste sour since it has lemon flavor but surprisingly it turned out delicious full of lemon flavor but not sour, very refreshing tea .
Lemongrass tea is so simple.
Let’s see how I made my tea 🙂
Boil about two cup of water
Add few pieces of lemongrass stems in boiling water
Add spoonful of tea
Add piece of grated ginger
Let it boil for minute or two
Add one cup milk
Let it boil again
Add sugar to your taste
Lemongrass tea is ready to enjoy 🙂
Have a delicious cup of lemongrass tea ☕️
In the garden This freshly pulled out garlic bulb will go in my vegetarian minestrone soup I am going to make for my breakfast soon 🙂
Peppermints are a herbs from a mint family, has much stronger favor and smell than any other mints .
Peppermints mostly used for making tea, you get tired of drinking same old ginger tulsi tea 🙂
Can be used in making oil, flavored drinks . Also used in toothpaste and candy.
It has many medicinal values great for digestion,tension headache, diabetes and blood pressure and many more.
In garden, rub a few peppermint leaves on arms and legs, mosquitos will stay away from the smells.
I only plant l peppermints once few years ago, now they keep coming every spring, sometimes it’s very cold in winter then will die down but comes back in spring.
I use in a tea so also dry some for winter time .
Almost year around I have peppermints in garden.
Love it ❤️
Do plant few herbs in the garden. They are very valuable not just as a food but as a medicine and preventive medicine .
Here some pictures of peppermints in garden.
Hope you enjoy.

This turmeric pickle stays fresh for long time if you keep it in a refrigerator. I grow turmeric in my garden so every fall when I harvest fresh turmeric, I make this pickle for whole year. This pickle is spicy, healthy and full of flavor.
Let’s make a turmeric pickle.
2 cups fresh turmeric. Peeled, washed, towel dry and sliced or shredded.

1/2 tsp turmeric powder
3 table spoon red chili powder. Add more or less according to your taste.
2 tsp mustard seeds crushed.
2 tsp fenugreek seeds crushed.
2 tsp pickle masala available in any Indian grocery stores. You can make this pickle without pickle masala too. I like to add pickle masala for extra taste.
1 tsp sugar.
2 fresh lemon’s juice. Make sure you take out seeds.
1 cup mustard oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
Pinch of hing or asafetida powder.
You can use any spice more or less , if you don’t like taste of mustard oil you can use half mustard oil and half olive oil.

When oil starts moving around in pan, that means oil is ready
Add mustard seeds
When mustard seeds starts spluttering or cracking turnoff the heat, take oil pan to one side .
Add pinch of hing in hot oil and let it cool.
While oil is cooling
Prepare turmeric for pickle
In a large bowl

Add salt, turmeric powder and lemon juice first
Mix it well until incorporated.
Now add remaining ingredients
Crushed mustard seeds

Pickle masala if you have
Red chili powder
