Jaljeera | Jaljira

Share with friends and family

Jaljeera is an Indian drink which is served as a starter before any meal and a very tasty appetizer.  This drink helps in digestion as well a very good source of hydration in peak summer. 

Jal jeera loosely translates to cumin water.  Cumin as we know has lot of medicinal properties and plays a vital role in aiding digestion and preventing stomach disorders .
Jaljeera is flavored with few other spices like black salt, rock salt, ginger , mint and some lemon juice to make it all the more tasty .
This drink can be easily prepared at home and relished during summers. 
Instead of sugar , I have added jaggery powder which makes it all the more healthy.

Preparation Time : 5 mins
Cooking time : Nil 
Makes 3 to 4 glasses 
Complexity: simple 


10 to 15 mint leaves 
Small piece of ginger  chopped
2 tablespoon  jaggery powder 
1 lemon
Small piece of ginger  
2 tsp roasted jeera powder
1 tsp chat masala 
1/2 tsp black salt 
1 tsp salt 
500 ml chilled water 

  • In a blender jar , add the  mint leaves, ginger ,jaggery powder , jeera powder , salt, black salt, chat masala and grind into a fine paste with little water .
  • Strain this using a strainer and collect the extract in a big vessel .
  • Add in the chilled  water to this extract and the lime juice squeezed from the lemon.
  • Stir it well and serve chilled. 

  1. Adjust jaggery if you want it a little more sweet .
  2. Store bought jaljeera powder can also be used to prepare this drink . In that case, skip the additional usage of chat masala, black salt and roasted jeera powder.
