This medicinal drink not only helps with your digestion problems, it also improves your appetite. In Hindi, jal means water, and jeera or jira means cumin and a mixture of these with other spices and herbs makes this a healthy and refreshing drink.

I am not a big fan of this drink, however, my husband loves this drink. Especially after a heavy late-night dinner, a Jaljeera drink is a must in our house. I even sometimes try with carbonated water or soda water. But today I am sharing the authentic traditional jal jeera recipe with plain water and some ice cubes. The recipe is prepared as an instant powder mix and the drink is prepared by mixing it with cold water. This way it is more convenient and the drink is ready within minutes. I have also posted other medicinal drinks like the kashaya recipe, masala milk recipe, and masala buttermilk but this recipe is easier to prepare.

Furthermore, some more related and additional tips, suggestions, and variants to Jaljeera Recipe. Firstly, the recipe is best served when the powder is mixed with cold chilled water. Optionally, you can add ice cubes to make it more refreshing. But if you have a cold or throat irritation you may skip to normal water. Secondly, the powder is a handy way, but you may prepare it freshly as a paste and mix it with water. This is the authentic way but can also be a time-consuming method. Lastly, store the powder in an airtight container for a longer shelf life.
