Panagam (sweetened drink made with jaggery) is a simple yet healthy drink. A handful of grated jaggery in water goes a long way in quenching thirst especially during hot summer days.
This delicious drink is usually prepared during Tamil New Year & Sri Rama Navami along with neer-moru (spiced buttermilk). This no-glitz inexpensive drink definitely has all potential to outshine any kind of soda / costly drinks in the market.
