Jal-Jeera / Jaljeera / Jaljira–Spiced Indian Drink

Today I am bringing a delicious and tongue tickling drink.. It is Jal-Jeera.. Jal means water and jeera is cumin seeds.. This is a very popular flavored drink in India and I got this recipe from here and changed very little.. All of us enjoyed this drink and it was so refreshing and energetic




Mint Leaves - 1/4 cup (chopped and packed)
Coriander Leaves - 1/4 cup (chopped and packed)
Ginger - 1 table spoon (chopped)
Cumin Seeds - 1 table spoon
Asafetida - 1/8 tea spoon
Salt - 1 tea spoon
Black Salt / Pink Salt - 1 tea spoon
Lemon Juice - 3 table spoons
Tamarind Paste - 1 table spoon
Sugar - 3 table spoons
Water - 5 cups
Ice - As needed
Mint Leaves / Coriander Leaves - for garnish



Roast the cumin seeds and set aside

To a blender, add mint leaves, coriander leaves, ginger, cumin seeds, asafetida, black salt, salt, sugar, lemon juice, tamarind paste and add 1 cup water and blend to a paste
Run this through a sieve and take the maximum flavor out
Put the remains back to the blender and blend it again with another 1/2 cup water
Run it through the sieve again
Discard the waste pulp now
Add water and mix it well
Refrigerate and when ready to serve add some ice cubes, garnish with the mint leaves / coriander leaves and serve chilled!!
