If you are looking for a perfect thirst quencher, then this drink is the right choice. Traditionally this drink is made by adding crushed chillies, curry leaves and ginger directly in this. Since i dont like them to catch in my mouth whole, i just add the juice from them. This way you could get them in your mouth. You can mix them with rice and have too. It is perfect for summer.
