With summer on its way, here is a recipe to beat the heat ahead. This drink is quite different from the regular sweet and tangy refreshers we generally take. It is a spicy one with cumin as its main ingredient. Apart from being a healthy drink it is a natural alternative to the instant squashes and ready mix powders that are available in the market.


Dry roasted cumin powder
2 tbsp
Fresh mint leaf paste
2 tbsp
Fresh coriander leaf paste
½ tsp
Amchur (dried mango powder)
1 ½ tbsp
Black salt
1 tbsp
Lemon juice
3 tbsp
1 tsp
Fresh mint leaves
For garnish

  • Combine all the above ingredients in a large jug.
  • Add 5 cups of cold water to it and stir well. 
  • Garnish with mint leaves while serving. You can also add 1 or 2 ice cubes.
