Chilled Green tea infusion flavoured with Lemon, honey and some saffron is enough to rejuvenate you in these hot summer months! So dip your way to good health with this Iced Green tea.__________________________________________________________Iced Green Tea recipe…
This week’s Natural summer cooler is Masala Taak. Unlike the cokes and colas these coolers are natural ,with no preservatives,no synthetic colours, no synthetic flavours..100% natural.I have no idea why some people still prefer carbonated drinks to our natural coolers and you will be surprised there are quite a few of them!Anyways, a glass of Taak flavoured with spices like ginger, coriander leaves, chillies, cumene and black salt, is all that it takes to refresh you in this scorching heat!…
The mercury seems to be still on the rise here and the heat is becoming unbearable. A glass of Kairee Panha (unripe Mango juice) is the best thirst quencher!
Kairee panha is a quintessential Maharashtrian summer cooler made by cooking unripe,green mangoes and blending them with jaggery (or sugar). I have grown up drinking the jaggery version of this traditional juice but you may use sugar too.
This year it looks like we are going to have an early and a very very hot summer, with the mercury already soaring to 38-39 deg C and its only March end! As you must have guessed,Summer is NOT my favourite season!
Food-wise though I have many reasons to look forward to summer -it’s the time to enjoy luscious ,delicious Mangoes , refreshing chilled juices, shakes, ice creams and all things cold!
Tomato cooler is a quick , 5-ingredient, healthy and a hassle juice, a perfect refresher to beat the heat. I learnt it from a friends who made it often for me when I was expecting my son. Now its a regular on our summer menu and today I specially made it for JFI Tomato hosted by the wonderful RP of My Workshop.
Tomatoes are cooked and flavored with roasted cumin seeds.Black salt enhances taste as well as aids digestion.You can add some mint leaves for added refreshment.
