    Chef #928625's Note:

    A very popular Indian drink for the hot summer months,Jal Jeera's unique combination of tamarind,cumin,mint,and salt is strangely addictive!The tamarind and cumin are said to be especially useful for cooling the body in hot weather or from a fever.Use the pre peeled packaged tamarind pulp with seeds found in Asian or Latin grocereies.The original recipe is from Saveur issue no.100.
