This year the summer in Delhi is nothing but cruel. It is hard to keep calm and find food inspirations. Everything around seems dull and melting. And that explains the reason for more and more drink recipes making it to the blog these days. This summer, to deal with the heat in my kitchen I am staying away from the stove top as much as possible and concentrating on no-cook or minimal cook recipes. They are the life saver. Whether it be cold salads, drinks, chutney or light curries – all of these are the highlight of my summer menu. Jamun Masala Soda is one of the best things that happened this summer. And probably one of the easiest way to manage the abundance of Jamun.

We are surviving in Delhi summer holding the tall glasses of smoothies, lemonades, and milkshakes. Because it is dry and scorching hot throughout the day. In midst of such high heat, a towering glassful of drinks such as Date and Coffee Milkshake help us keep calm and get going. It has become one of our favorite breakfast drinks for two reasons – it si all naturally sweetened with date and it has coffee.

Summer is officially here, and all the heat and energy accumulated throughout the day needs to be gently dissolved with soothing drinks. This Turmeric Lemonade is the perfect summer cooler. Did you ever think of adding turmeric to a cooling drink? For me, turmeric has always been a warming ingredient, until I read about recipes using it in drinks/cocktails and spritzers. In India, turmeric is commonly added to the milk that too during the winter season only. Haldi wala doodh or golden milk is the only turmeric flavored drink I have ever tasted until I tried this turmeric lemonade recipe.

Mulligatawny Soup is an English soup recipe with origins in Indian cuisine. To be more precise the roots of its origin are in the Anglo-Indian Cuisine developed during the British Raj in India. The name originates from the Tamil words millagai/milagu and thanni and can be translated as “pepper water”. Many relate Mulligatawny Soup with the pepper rasam recipe as well. Both have quite a few similarities as well. But Mulligatawny Soup is thick in texture and is much more than just a soup. It can be happily placed in the category of one-pot meal bowls. It has lentil, rice, plenty of vegetables, coconut milk and herbs. All that required making hearty, fulfilling and comforting one bowl dish.
