- Now, add jeera, saunf and ajwain to the water and allow all the ingredients to seep in their flavours on low flame.
- Once the colour of the water starts to change to green and brown, add in big and small cardamom along with dalchini. Switch off the flame.
- Next, strain the concoction in a glass and sprinkle a pinch of black pepper in the drink.
Note: All these spices have healing properties that can benefit one's health to a great extent. You may also add honey to the concoction to increase its nutritional count.
