Jal Jeera 

Jal Jeera or Jaljeera is a very common, spicy and tangy cold drink made from cumin seeds. "Jal" means water in Hindi and "Jeera" means cumin in Hindi. Jal Jeera is the Indian version of the American summer drink "Lemonade". And just like the lemonade it makes for a refreshing drink in summer. It is generally served as an appetizer as it wakes up the taste buds.

The Cumin makes this drink special as it aids in digestion.  The mint has a cooling effect. One of the main ingredients is black salt or rock salt which acts as a digestive. Well, with all these benefits it makes for a great starting point for a great meal.

2 tablespoons Cumin seeds - dry roasted and ground fine
2 tablespoons Mint leaves paste
1/2 teaspoon fresh Cilantro leaves paste
1 tablespoon Dried mango powder/Amchur
1/2 teaspoon Black salt (an important ingredient for this recipe)
2 tablespoons Lemon juice
Pinch of Sugar
5 cups of Chilled water
Mint Leaves for garnishing

In a bowl mix all of the above ingredients except the water and mix well. Add the cold water.  Garnish with mint leaves.

Black Salt also known as Rock Salt. is a special type of Indian mineral salt. It's more grayish pink than black and has a very special smokey flavor. The major use of this "spice" is to impart the special characteristic flavor to the tangy fresh salads called Chaats. In fact, without kala namak - you can't make an authentic Chaat.   Top
