Food is always about memories. There are a few dishes which remain fresh in our memory even after a considerable time. Each one of us have such memories. I had this Tamarind Juice as a Welcome Drink a long time ago at a Spa. After struggling through the traffic & noisy cars, this cold sweet and sour welcome drink was not only refreshing but also very relaxing. many years later, the taste of that Tamarind Juice is still fresh in my memory
I love experimenting and making new dishes. While I prepare most of the drinks keeping in mind my daughter and husband, this tamarind drink was an exception. This was for me and my friends. My friends relish sour tamarind, especially when its sourness is well balanced with the sweetness of jaggery. I made this drink for my friends and all of them loved it. To my surprise, my husband also loved it.
Served in smaller quantities Tamarind juice is a perfect welcome drink. Tamarind improves appetite and roasted cumin powder, black salt added to the juice assists digestion. In addition, tamarind juice also quenches thirst and has a cooling effect.
