The explanation of this recipe’s title is very simple – ginger is a very special food ingredient, the flavour of ginger especially enriches our taste buds during colder days, ginger contains gingerol, gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger having powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties; paneer (cottage cheese/Indian cheese), is a dairy product rich in nutrients and is also a rich source of probiotics – probiotics are live microorganisms that have health benefits when consumed.
Thus the combination of gingerol and probiotics is a potent combination for health, especially during colder days when health related issues are at a rise.
Rice is the staple food of over half the world’s population, this combination of gingerol and probiotics when merged with rice, it gives rice more nutrients and flavour.
