Ginger thokku is a South Indian condiment made from ginger, which is a popular spice used in many Indian dishes for its strong and spicy flavor. Ginger thokku is made by grinding ginger along with other ingredients such as tamarind, red chili powder, jaggery, salt, and various spices.
The mixture is then cooked with oil until it reaches a thick and spreadable consistency. Ginger thokku is usually eaten as a side dish or as a condiment with rice, chapati, dosa, or idli. It is also known for its medicinal properties and is said to aid digestion and boost immunity.
Ginger thokku can be made at home or purchased from Indian grocery stores. It can also be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a few weeks.
