JAL JEERA RECIPE | JAL JEERA DRINK

Jal jeera is a famous mint flavoured lemonade generally served as an appetizer and a very popular summer drink too. Though i have tasted this many times in restaurants, i never thought i can make this at home. I have used few store bought jal jeera powder but after trying jal jeera drink at home, i have decided not to buy any store bought jal jeera powder from shops.  This jal jeera drink is very easy to make and you will get addicted to this summer cooler.  Try out this easy jal jeera drink at home with easy available ingredients at home.
