Kesar Elaichi Sharbat- A very delicious and refreshing cooler made with saffron,cardamom and rose water
Kesar Elaichi Sharbat – As soon as the summer season arrives we all make different types of sharbat, squash and cooler regularly. These sharbats or cooler helps to give some relief to beat the scorching heat of the hot summer season. Sharbats and squashes are either made from natural juices of vegetables and fruits or made with synthetic essence and colors.
Sharbats made with artificial colors and essences are nothing but only added sugar and are of no use except adding extra calories. So always try to make use of fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables to make refreshing sharbat , squash and coolers. I always make fresh sharbat with fruits ,flower and vegetables every season.
