Black Fungus With Dates Drink

Black Fungus With Ginger Drink
This drink is said to help reduce high blood cholesterol.  How effective, I do not know but it certainly helps to keep cholesterol in check if you tend to eat a lot of fried and fatty food. 
Main ingredients - Black fungus, red dates and ginger
50 gm black fungus- soaked and rinsed
500 ml water
3-4 thick slices of old ginger
9 red dates
Boil until water is reduced to 1 cup
  • Put all ingredients in a pot or slow cooker.  Bring to a boil and simmer on low fire till drink is slightly thick.  Pour into a bowl or mug [about 240 ml].  Serve warm [best on empty stomach].  Discard the ingredients.  
  • Prepare this drink fortnightly or once a month would be good for all.
