This is another famous drink from north India. Came to know that this helps in easy digestion. Preparation is very easy. One can prepare the ingredients and store it in a cool dry place and add it to cool water and serve whenever needed.

Jeera - 2 tbsp
Mint leaves - 2 tbsp
Coriander leaves - 2 tbsp
Black Salt - 1/2 tsp

Grind mint and coriander leaves into a fine paste. Dry roast Jeera and grind it finely. Roast the powder again. Mix the ground paste, jeera powder, lemon juice, black salt and sugar. Blend them well. (This can be stored for a day or two if refrigerated). Add a tspn full of it to a glass of chilled water. Add an ice cube if prefferred; decorate it with finely chopped mint and coriander leaves.

Instead of lemon juice, aamchoor powder can also be used.
