Aalepak/ Aalyachya Vadya (Ginger Sweet Cubes)

“Aalepak” Whenever I hear the word , everytime I recall my childhood.  One hawker was calling loudly ………"Sardi khokala, zatakan mokala" means if you have cold & cough, eat Aalepak; you will get relief  quickly. Yes, that’s true, ginger is good for cough & cold.
Here is a simple recipe of my mother-in-law. See..... how perfectly she made this !!
