I have always been drafting a memory to go with my recipe on the post… Or if not, I pen down behind the scenes! Let’s do something different this time… I have come up with an idea to post a quiz along with a recipe!!! And you gotta reply all these questions in comment section with the 1st answer that comes to your mind :P

I enjoy each silly simple thing… That makes me happy! And so I feel I should ask you the same silly questions… There is no better way to know my foodie-friends… :) Your questions are (unfortunately, I don’t offer 4 options like AB does):

  1. Last thing you got compliments for?
  2. Do you prefer shoes that you can slip on or have to tie?
  3. What was your favorite snack food as a child?
  4. Which song u downloaded lately?
  5. When did you last smile?
  6. What is the last thing you watched on TV?
  7. When did you last step outside? 
  8. Name one person you wish to be alike.
  9. What are three cosmetic/makeup/perfume products that you can’t live without?
  10. You prefer dancing or singing?

Now, coming back to recipe of the day! A glass of super refreshing, digestive and delicious appetizer – “Jaljeera“. It helps you stay lively in scorching heat of summer!!!

Back in India, I had it several times at ‘Kankaria Lake’ where the street-vendors are used to keep it in a big clay-pot (matka)! It helps keeping it cool but refrigerator isn’t a bad option to try it at home… It’s really so quick!


Serves: 4


10-12 Mint leaves
1/4 cup Coriander leaves
1 tsp Chopped ginger
1 tbsp Cumin powder
A pinch of Black pepper powder
1 tsp Black salt
1/4 tsp Salt
1 tbsp Tamarind paste
1/2 tsp Sugar
4 cups Chilled water


  1. Take all the ingredients in a mixture jar and grind it to make a smooth paste.
  2. Transfer it to a big bowl and add chilled water into it.
  3. Mix and then strain directly in the glasses.
  4. Garnish with mint leaves and enjoy it chilled!!! :)


  • Lemon juice is a replacement for tamarind paste…
  • Can be served with panipuri by adding ‘masala boondi’ on top.
