Beat the heat with this delicious Tamarind Drink.

in Natural Medicine2 months ago

The summer season is almost started here in India and the next couple of months will be very hot. Despite scorching heat outside we can not avoid completely going outside.

In India, there are a lot of remedies popular to prevent sunstrock, it includes covering ourselves with clothes, using an umbrella having some specific drinks and foods before going out. One of the most interesting remedies is keeping an onion with us also protect us from sunstroke, but how this particular remedy is authentic I have no Idea.

I think having some specific drinks like aam ka pana (raw mango drink) Imli ka paani (Tamarind drink), Bilve Juice, Thandai etc are very helpful to prevent sunstroke, as these drinks are water-based and have lots of essential salts and minerals which helps to prevent dehydration. Even if none of the above drink is available we must drink enough water before going into the scorching heat.

In my previous post, I preserved some tamarind for use in a various recipe. Tamarind drink is not only a useful but a delicious drink to beat the scorching heat
This recipe is very simple and required only a few ingredients.
