I have to first admit that I have never tasted jigarthanda before, though I really wanted to. I every time stare at the Jigarthanda picture in Murugan Idli shop, but never tried it. I will surely try soon as I want to try it in a restaurant too. After I tried few days back, I am really liking its rich taste. I have never tried falooda too, some people say this is also tastes similar to that. Since I am a great great fan of nanaari sarbath, I always buy and stock the sharbat bottle and have it now and then with lemon squeezed to it. I really love it. I have never liked the flavor as a kid, but now totally changed. I love to have it chilled with loads of ice cubes, a pinch of salt and lemon squeezed to it. Thats nannari shebat I have usually. I always wondered if we could use this syrup in any other ways. But had no idea until I saw the recipe in CFG. I referred Pavithra’s blog too for the basic idea. I enjoyed this drink to the core, I am sure this will be your favorite too if you try. Its body coolant too with the nanaari syrup and the agar agar. I know there are lots of variations in the recipe, but here’s mine.
Mix and drink the Jil Jil Jigarthanda. Yummy, rich drink that cools your soul too!
