Sesame is high in Iron and is one of the most popular juices that people in Karnataka use as a coolant during summer. Though calling it as a juice is a misnomer as either coconut milk or cold milk is added to the roasted, ground and strained Sesame. Jaggery is used to sweeten the drink and a dash of Cardamom powder adds to its taste.
- 250 gms Sesame/Til
- 100 gms Jaggery
- 15 cloves of Cardamom powdered
Dry roast the Sesame in small batches till it splutters without dehulling it. Allow it to cool thoroughly. Dry grind it to a fine powder. Pass it through a sieve. Mix it with required amount of coconut milk and jaggery or with cold milk and jaggery. Sprinkle Cardamom powder. Mix well and serve chilled.
Note: The amount of Sesame powder and jaggery used depends on individual preference.
