Dried ginger are fresh ginger dried under direct sunlight.

 Ginger root or ginger is widely used as a spice in different cuisines of the world. Ginger has some medicinal values too and used to cure many health problems since ancient times. Gingerol is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant substance which is present in ginger. It may help in the treatment of nausea, indigestion problem, weight loss and lowering blood sugar. 

Dry ginger are fresh ginger dried under direct sunlight or in microwave. Unlike fresh ginger dry ginger can be used as a spice and also as a home remedy in treating different health issues. Dry ginger are easy to prepare and easy to store. You can easily prepare it at home.  

In this dried ginger recipe I am using Moran ginger (মৰান আদা), a type of ginger found in Assam in which it is believed to have more medicinal value than simple white ginger. If you don't have moran ginger, you can use any type of ginger available in your place.
