It is that time of the year again. We have switched on the fans and the ACs and are using umbrella and sunglasses to step out of the houses. In fact, we are trying every way out to keep ourselves cool amidst the unbearable heat outside. Another popular way of keeping ourselves cool is chugging gallons of coolers. While we find myriads of coolers to choose from, there are a few that instantly tug at heartstrings - shikanji being one of them. A classic desi drink, shikanji is kind of nimbu paani with some fizz. Besides, it adds some spice to our palate too. Shikanji includes roasted jeera, chaat masala and black salt that adds some earthy flavour to the tangy-sweet drink.
