Now that it is actually feeling like summer and memorial day is almost around the corner I want to share this recipe with you. Its my favorite lemonade recipe with a kick of fresh spicy and aromatic – ginger. My memories of Indian summers are hot and lazy days, off from school, hanging out with friends and cousins. Growing up, it was a ritual at my home, everyday, to make a giant jar of lemonade in the morning. We would then serve it to the family and friends that would visit us during the day! No one ever refused the offer of fresh homemade lemonade when they arrived from the scorching sun outside. My mom, always added ginger and for me lemonade always must have fresh ginger. The first time when my husband, Ravi tasted it, he related it to the fresh sugarcane juice in India. Only then I realized that there was something very different about this lemonade. It was the freshly grated ginger, with its aroma and spicy kick, that made it – oh so refreshing and delicious!

One of his recipes that caught my attention right away was the ginger tamarind brussels sprouts. Ginger is my latest love in cooking, for the most part when I see ginger as one of the main ingredients I want to try the recipe right away.

I usually roast my brussels sprouts or make a cold salad by shaving it thin. I was happy to see this recipe and the photos made my mouth water wanting to make this asap!
