Jal Jeera

Jal Jeera is an Indian beverage. In Hindi, "Jal" means water and "Jeera" means cumin. Jal Jeera is similar to lemonade and is a popular summer drink in India. It is generally served as an appetizer as it is intended to startle the taste buds.

The Cumin is a medicinal ingredient which aids digestion. The mint has a cooling effect on the consumer. One of the main ingredients is black salt or rock salt which acts as a digestive.

Jal Jeera is popular in Northern India because of its cooling properties against the temperature of the region. It is generally served with appetizers before a meal, but is also drunk between meals. It contains no sugar, which makes it rather healthy.

Nowadays companies like Everest Spices sell Everest Jal Jeera Masala, which can just be aded to cold water with a hint of lime.

Jal Jeera is popular in the USA at most Indian restaurants, as well.
