Pudina Sherbet is an Indian style mint juice that is a staple drink on most Indian restaurant menus.
Singapore has been hit with a dry spell – the longest dry spell in recorded history. With this in mind, I have decided to present an Indian drink recipe to help keep us cool in this weather.
India is hit with long, dry summers annually. These hot summers make the Northern part of India feel like an oven. Your throat constantly feels parched and you would find yourself constantly reaching for something to drink. Over time Indians have created multiple cooling drinks to combat the hot summers. These drinks are cooling, refreshing and really tasty.
Pudina Sherbet is one such cooling drink. The recipe to create this drink is simple.
Pudina (Mint) is known for its cooling properties. Mint combined with lime juice, a touch of ginger and a dash of chaat masala makes this a refreshing and tasty drink.
If you are looking to keep in cool in this dry spell, make yourself a Pudina Sherbet. Happy blending!
Step 1: Prepare your ingredients
You will need:
Fresh Indian pudina can be found at Mustafa Centre’s grocery section.
Step 2: Finely slice the ginger.
Step 3: Add the 3 cups of water, sliced ginger and 2 cubes of jaggery into a pot. Heat the mixture over low heat and bring to boil. This gives the water a ginger flavour.
Step 4: Strain the boiled mixture into the blender. Add the mint leaves to the blender. Blend the contents.
Step 5: Add 1 tablespoon of chaat masala and 2 tablespoons of lime juice and blend further .
Step 6: Strain the juice into a jug. This is to remove the pulp of the blended mint leaves.
Step 7: Refrigerate the juice for an hour. Garnish with mint leaves and serve.
