This is a traditional Indian drink meant for the hot summer months.Though there will be a slight change in flavor you can substitute sugar for jaggery if you cant find the latter. Happy sipping!

What a refreshing beverage! I absolutely love the pepper, ginger & cardamom combination. This was a totally new flavor for me & I'm really glad I tried it. I'll definitely make it again when the weather warms. I cut the recipe in half (as I knew the rest of my family wouldn't drink it) and used superfine/baker's sugar in place of the jaggery, which I'd like to try sometime. The real sugar made the drink a little too sweet, so next time I'll just cut it back a bit. A nice, spicy lemonade. Delish! Thanks for sharing, Nabiha. Made for the India - More than just Curries Tag Game.
