    1. Dear Manjula,

      thank you soooo much for sharing your recipies and for your kind way to do it. It`s like I am together with my indian friend Thangam in her kitchen in Dubai.
      Jaljeera is one of my favourite drinks in summertime but also in winter. Then I mix the spices with hot water and it warms from inside totally. The drink also helps with digestion.

      All the best from Germany
