BEAT THE SUMMERTIME BLUES!!

Watermelon juice or tarbuz sorbet - it’s a must in the summer season. Here’s why:
- The fruit itself contains a large quantity of water.
- Calorie conscious people can gorge on watermelon as it satisfies your hunger and the calorie intake is minimal.
- Watermelon is mildly laxative in nature, so it keeps constipation at bay.
- Watermelon has small brown seeds embedded in its flesh. Deseed the fruit for making the juice, salt the seeds, dry and roast. These seeds are also good for health.

Prep Time: 20 mins Servings: 2 tall glasses

Ingredients:
3 large bowls of roughly cut deseeded watermelon pieces
Sugar (optional)
1 tsp Chaat masala (assorted spices)
1 large bowl of finely cut cubes of watermelon
Crushed ice to serve

Method of preparation:
- Serve chilled with crushed ice and the finely cut cubes of watermelon fruit..
 
A Traditional Bhang Recipe


Ingredients:

• 2 cups water
• 1 ounce marijuana (fresh leaves and flowers of a female plant preferred)
• 4 cups warm milk
• 2 tablespoons blanched and chopped almonds
• 1/8 teaspoon garam masala (a mixture of cloves, cinnamon, and cardamon)
• 1/4 teaspoon powdered ginger
• 1/2 to 1 teaspoon rosewater
• 1 cup sugar

Method of preparation:

Bring the water to a rapid boil and pour into a clean teapot. Remove any seeds or twigs from the marijuana; add it to the teapot and cover. Let this brew for about 7 minutes. Now strain the water and marijuana through a piece of muslin cloth, collect the water and keep aside. Take the leaves and flowers and squeeze between your hands to extract any liquid that remains. Add this to the water. Place the leaves and flowers in a mortar and add 2 teaspoons of warm milk. Slowly but firmly grind the milk and leaves together. Gather up the marijuana and squeeze out as much milk as you can. Repeat this process until you have used about 1/2 cup of milk (about 4 to 5 times). Collect all the milk that has been extracted and place in a bowl. By this time the marijuana will have turned into a pulpy mass. Add the chopped almonds and some more warm milk. Grind this in the mortar until a fine paste is formed. Squeeze this paste and collect the extract as before. Repeat a few more times until all that is left are some fibers and nut meal. Discard the residue. Combine all the liquids that have been collected, including the water the marijuana was brewed in. Add to this the garam masala, dried ginger and rosewater. Add the sugar and remaining milk. Chill, serve, and enjoy.
