Ginger & Mint flavoured Lemon Juice

Lemon juice is what I prefer to have daily in the morning after little walk. And in hot summer, cool juice is always  refreshing. I made slightly changes to the simple juice and improvised it with different flavours.

2 Lemons
2 sprigs Mint
1" piece Ginger grated
1 tbsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
3 cups Water
1 cup Soda water

Take chopped mint and ginger into a ding-chik and slightly mash and add to the water. Squeeze juice from the lemons and add to the water. Add sugar and salt and keep the jug in the refrigerator overnight.

Next day morning strain away the ginger and mint that is added to the water and add the soda water. Add some chopped fresh mint leaves if you would like and serve them in glasses.

This chilled lemon juice with ginger and mint flavour is sure a winner.

This is off to Juice Recipes Event being hosted by Dr. Sameena at My Culinary Creations and Healing foods - Ginger & Garlic Event being hosted by Sara of Sara's Corner and Herbs and Flowers in my platter - Mint being hosted by PJ of Seduce Your Tastebuds

Announcing Pickle/Achar/Uragayi Mela Event

Summer is very close by and all our mothers and grand mothers get ready to prepare pickles that stay year long. I am a spicy food lover and pickles on my lunch menu satisfy me. In Andhra especially many varieties of pickles are made with various types of vegetables. To name few, mangoes, raw tamarind (chintakayalu), Goose Berries/Amla (usirikayalu), fresh Red chillies (not dry red chillies)(pandumirapakayalu), tomatoes etc. Usually I get these pickles from my mother or mother-in-law. This time, since I am in hyderabad, I want to try my hands in making these lovely pickles. So, I want to host this event to call all the fellow bloggers to show off your experience in making these lovely pickles.

Another intention of hosting this event is to learn, how pickles are made across the India, cause north-indian pickles/achar taste different with some masalas in them. Oh! I love to have them with nice lovely parathas. So bring it on girls I am waiting here.
