Homemade Bentong Ginger Powder

All these while, I had been loving Ginger tea and always bought from homemade store various type of Ginger made products namely the Ginger tea with longan, Ginger powder and etc.

Recently, I was searching high and low for Original Pure Bentong Ginger powder in the market, however, I wasn't able to find the one I really looking for! 

Since I had my own dehydrator and my sis was suggesting, why not made our own Ginger powder and at least we know what it made from. Moreover, with Thermomix TM5, I can basically grind and blend anything!

This was my first time making it, was too excited and didn't really took photos, will post up more photos on the next time I make it!

I had ordered 10kgs of Bentong Ginger from a friend of my brother. After getting the Ginger, maid had helped me to wash clean and dried the Ginger. 

After few days, we sliced it using the Tupperware brand Mandoline which is really eased us on slicing work. We can cut into our desired thickness without a sweat. After slicing it, now you place all the sliced Ginger into dehydrator to dehydrate it for 6hrs every round. We used about 3 days continually to dehydrate 10kgs of Ginger. 
       This is the Mandoline I was using

After done with dehydrated the Ginger, I used my new toy - TM5 to grind it into powder. I had grinded all the 10kgs Bentong Ginger and only had about 850grams of Ginger powder!

Many asking me, what's the used of Ginger powder, why bother to make it myself since it's so troublesome and not easy!

Well, homemade Bentong Ginger is hearhier and most importantly is we know what we consume and it's PURE! This Ginger powder that I made, smell so good compared to those we got from market. 

Usually I used my homemade Bentong Ginger powder for cooking (salted chicken especially), to cure cough, caught flu and etc. Ginger powder is good for our health and we should always keep a bottle with us at home!
