Cucumber mint cooler & Awards

The summer is fast approaching and anything cool would do good to our thirsty souls.

I watched this on tv, nothing great I thought until i had it myself.The mint and cucumber impart a soothing flavour to the water rather than just having it by itself.Adding a little salt and lemon juice takes it a notch higher!

You need

Water as required
Mint leaves as required
Coriander leaves/cilantro as needed
Cucumber slices few
Lime juice of one lime
Salt to taste
Chaat masala as required

  • Pound or chop the leaves and drop in a glass or jug.Add a few slices of cucumber.Top it lime juice,salt and chaat masala.
  • Add enough water.
  • Have this cool drink as it is or chilled and rejuvenate yourself!
