Keep your cool with these traditional homemade drinks
Summer is an excuse to dig into all the ice-creams and cold drinks we like. We all know about nimbu ka sherbet, jaljeera and lassi. But there are some lesser-known drinks, easily made at home and highly recommended by grandmothers, primarily for their cooling properties. The fact that these drinks are highly refreshing and delicious is an added bonus.
Bael sherbet
Bael or wood apple is considered an excellent cooler for the stomach during summers. It is often prescribed as a remedy for various gastro-intestinal problems like diarrhoea and dysentery. The sherbet is made by soaking the pulp in water and straining it. The resultant concentrate is then mixed with water and sugar. It is served chilled and makes for a delicious and refreshing drink.
Talkha
It is a drink made by soaking and grinding puffed rice. It is rich in carbohydrates and helps prevent heat stroke. The resultant paste is mixed with chilled water and sugar or salt, as per taste. Spices like cumin powder and black salt, along with lemon juice and mint leaves are also often added to the drink.
