This recipe is especially for all of us in the Middle East crumbling under the summer sun that has just begun to blaze. Our counterparts in India seem luckier, thanks to the timely rains.
Preparation time: 15-20 mins
Mint 1 bunch
Pinch of pepper
Chat masala to taste
Salt to taste
Dissolve 2 tbsp sugar in ice cold water for 15 mins. Add juice extracted from the lemons and stir well.
Wash & pluck the mint leaves. Blend together: the mint leaves and half a cup of water.
Strain excess mint leaves in the mint water through a strainer.
Add the strained mint water, to the lemon juice prepared above. Add pinch of salt, pepper and sprinkle chat masala.
Serve immediately with crushed ice or as it is. The mint flavor doesn’t last long and thus, the sooner the tastier. Now, this is indeed a yummy and simple way to cut the heat and stay chilled.
