Add some spice to your usual "neembu paani"...and feel the difference yourself!!
Grind the mint leaves, lemon juice and all the spices into a paste. Add the water. Mix everything well and serve 4 glasses of this super-tasty, healthy and very very refreshing drink!!
Note: The recipe of Mint Lemonade that I am sharing with you is almost the same as Jaljeera. If you want to have Jaljeera, just add a li'l bit amchoor more and garnish the drink with 'namkeen boondi' (the one that's used in Raita). Also, reduce the quantity of sugar by half.
My pick: Of these, the first one (Aam panna) is my personal favorite; however, when I am at my laziest self or just running out of time or mangoes, I almost always end up falling on the last one (mint lemonade)!
