Minty Tamarind Cooler

A tangy, sweet and refreshing drink prepared from tamarind and mint leaves. You will love the splash of flavours when you take the first sip – tanginess of tamarind, sweetness of jaggery and the zesty flavour of mint leaves. We have added chaat masala powder just to balance the sweetness of jaggery plus to add a more tangy effect to our drink. If you want, you may also skip adding chaat masala and add lemon juice instead. We have not added many spices and kept this simple.

The taste of this drink will remind you of the paani puri ka teekha meetha paani. Enjoy this drink on a hot day to beat the heat.
