Ginger Pieces-1 cup
Sugar-1 1/4 cup
Water for cooking -3 cup
Peel and wash ginger thoroughly..
Try to take tender ginger ,I mean less fibrous..
Cut the ginger into desired shape like cubes,stripes or oval … (dont make too thin ,otherwise if u bite u cant feel the ginger than sugar )
Then take a pan and add ginger pieces along with 1 1/2 cup of water ..Boil for 10 minutes..
Strain (if u are using good water , dont throw , u can use it for making tea)
Again add water and boil for another 10 minutes ..
Strain and keep aside ..
Take a non stick pan ,add these cooked ginger along with 1 1/4 cup of sugar,salt and 1 cup water ..
Cook for 30 minutes in medium flame …By that time u can see the ginger to be translucent …
Pour some sugar in a bowl,take the ginger from sugar syrup ,and put along with the sugar
Mix well ,sugar must be coated with all the ginger pieces nicely…Then place each candied ginger into a wax paper allow to dry for 1 hour ..
After that u can keep ur inchi mittayi in a air tight container and enjoy….(u can preserve the ginger sugar syrup and use in future while baking ,making tea ..)
So hope u will tr out this soon
