Garlic is a widely recognized health enhancing supplement around the world.Garlic promotes the well being of the heart and immune systems with antioxidant properties and helps maintain healthy blood circulation.Garlic has germanium in it.Germanium is an anti-cancer agent and garlic has more of it than any other herbs.Another health benefit  of garlic is it helps regulate the body's blood pressure.So whether you have a problems with low or high blood pressure garlic can help equalize it .It is also a good choice for killing and expelling parasites such has pin worms from the body.
         In addition to all these health benefits,garlic is packed with vitamins and nutrients .Some of them are vitamin A ,B,B2  and C,calcium ,Zinc, potassium, protein and many others.
                                I still remember whenever i had this tonsillitis my amma(mom) used to advise me to have garlic with beaten rice.Just crush few garlic cloves and have it  along with beaten rice,chew it for some time and swallow it.It acts like a antibiotic. Another   mom's remedy, when ever our servant used to complain of pain in her fingers due to peeling off the skin around her finger tips,my mom used to fry some garlic along with some salt and used to tie them around her finger and believe me the pain just vanishes within no garlic is a very useful herb.I try to add this in my daily diet in some forms.Today i want to share this tasty garlic chutney which we use to carry when we used to travel by train  along with our soft idlies.Let me start with the ingredients for this lovey chutney.

garlic cloves-8-10(crushed slightly)
