Jal Jeera

After the Paneer dishes from the menu card for Day 1 and Day 2 for the first week of BM #47, let us check out a coolant and a digestive aid from the same menu card.

I typically rely on the ready made jal jeera powder for my husband but wanted to make it from scratch for a change and it was indeed a 're-freshing' change (no pun intended).

This aromatic drink is the healthier version of the Indianized Lemonade!

Recipe adapted from here
Ingredients - 

Mint leaves handful (I used a tsp of Dry Mint Powder)
Coriander leaves handful
Ginger , grated 1 tsp or to taste
Roasted Cumin Seed Powder 1 tsp
Black Salt , Salt and Sugar as needed
Lemon Juice 1-2 tsp
Asafoetida a pinch
Tamarind extract or Amchur Powder as needed
Water and Ice as needed

Jal Jeera

Method Of Preparation -

Blend the mint, coriander leaves, ginger, roasted cumin powder, tamarind extract in a cup of water.

Strain and use the resultant water.

Add Black Salt , Salt, Sugar and Lemon Juice as needed.

Adjust the flavors to taste, add a few ice cubes and garnish with either mint or coriander leaves.

Serve on a hot summer day or to soothe your stomach after a heavy meal!
