Lemon Grass Juice by Veena Bhaktha

Lemon grass has medicinal as well as cooling properties. It is used widely in Thai recipes and in concoctions for whooping cough and recovery from bad cold. I have found one more use of Lemon grass in my ancestral home in the remote village of Hosmath in DK District. It is a refreshing aromatic juice with the tang of lemon and richness of Vitamin C.

If consumed regularly, kids will develop better resistance for diseases and also be hale and pink. A good restorative in the cold winter months!
