Dried ginger is produced according to the following steps; • The fresh rhizome is harvested at between 8 and 9 months of age. • The roots and leaves are removed and the rhizomes are washed. • The rhizome is killed. This is done by peeling, rough scraping or chopping the rhizome into slices (either lengthwise or across the rhizome). Whole, unpeeled rhizomes can be killed by boiling in water for about 10 minutes. • The rhizome pieces are then dried. This drying is often done by sun-drying or using dehydrator machine.  You may contact premierdryer from Kochi, Kerala and check with them the price of ginger dehydrator machine which looks like below, Also, if you want to see how sutha can be prepared at home, you can check the video at
