Ginger is a traditional vegetable. In Tamil language, we call it as "Inji". Ginger has many health benefits. Particularly it is said to help in digestion.

In the country side, you can get a candy made out of Ginger. This is particularly sold in Bus stops and Railway stations. This candy helps control the stomach problems and nausea during travel.

There are some dish where we use Ginger as main ingredient for example: Ginger Kuzhambu. Ginger Kuzhambu is great as a side dish for Idly. Not common these days. Again this is one of the country side traditional dishes.
