This is one easily made refreshing drink which is enjoyed at Tamil new year ; and also
during Ram Navami. It is considered a home made cool drink , and in few houses
they drink this before leaving for an important assignment outside. Just like dahi – shakkar
(sweet curd)in North India.
Its a very easy recipe, and I just love this. Made this for both new year celebration and
Ram Navami festival. This looks just like coca cola when served in glass. So when the daddy
is having coke, kids can be served these. As it is healthy for kids to enjoy. Hope you like it
as we enjoy it.
