Jal Jeera - जल जीरा (Indian Cumin Lemonade)

Hello friends,


This is a very common drink usually served with lunch/dinner mainly and then anytime else you feel like drinking something cold. Cumin is supposed to be something that cools down your body and thus a perfect drink for summer. I was checking net and someone called it Indian Cumin lemondae and I really liked the English name of it :)


Jal Jeera - जल जीरा (Indian Cumin Lemonade)


Ingredients
Jeera (Cumin seeds) - 2 tbsp roasted and coarsely powdered
Pudina (Mint Leaves) - 10-12 leaves
Amchur (Mango Powder) - 1 tsp
Kala Namak (Black Salt) - 1/2 tsp
Nimbu Ras (Lemon Juice) - 1 tsp
Cheeni (Sugar) - 1/2 tsp
Cold Water - 3 cups
Namak (Salt) - as per taste
Preparation
  • Paste everything in a blender except for cold water.
  • Mix the paste with water and chill it further if serving later in fridge.
Serving
Strain the water (or leave it if you do not mind the powders) and serve it as a drink right before lunch/dinner.


That's all for now. Till next post, take care.
