Panak /nimbe panaka/panakam is a Sanskrit word.It  means juice or diluted sweet water.This drink  is basically served in our hindu temples. The name itself  is so divine . This drink  contains pepper and ginger along with jaggery and lemon .when you gulp this drink you can feel the sharp taste of these  two spices and  it also rich in vitamin C and iron ,that's the reason its healthy and  a very good home remedy for the common cold. For me this drink is an absolute delight !   
                I really used to miss this drink a lot. At last i got this recipe from my friend.In summer i make 2-3 bottles of  this and refrigerate for couple of days.

Water- 1litre 
Pepper corns-1tsp
Dry ginger powder -1tsp

  • Pound pepper,ginger and cardamom well.
  • Now blend water, jaggery,lemon juice,pound pepper-ginger mixture ( if you are using ginger powder then mix instead of fresh) and crushed ice in a blender.
  • Strain the juice and serve chilled.
