How to make JIGARTHANDA/JIL JIL JIGARTHANDA – A MADURAI SPECIAL SUMMER COOLER

  1. First let's see the lovely cooling ingredients! 1.Badam Pisin – This is a hard gum got from the bark of Almond Trees.However when soaked in water for 8 – 10 hours or overnight,they become a soft and non sticky jelly consistency which can be easily had with any drink or milk.The gum is a natural cooler and relieves a person of summer heat especially heat related fever,watery red eyes or simple body heat.They also relieve tummy issues and are natural ulcer cures.The picture shows the natural or hard Badam Pisin.
  2. Method : For this recipe soak 1 tbsp hard Badam Pisin in 1 cup water overnight.In the Morning it would have turned into a non sticky translucent jelly.Refrigerate and use as required.The picture shows Badam Pisin after soaking overnight as it becomes a non sticky jelly.
  3. 2.Nannari Syrup – Nannari is a herb,the official name for which is ‘Sarasaparilla’ which is known for its cooling properties and speciality to cure summer ailments!Just as we pour Chocolate,Maple,Caramel or Toffee sauces over our normal ice creams,I have poured this over this fusion ice cream and it tastes so good!You can get Nannari Syrup online from Amazon or eBay stores.Those in the South Indian regions will have it available at any supermarket or store and so can get it easily.Its an orangish,amber,wonderfully sweet,cooling and refreshing syrup which is used with water or soda to make a drink or used with milk based preparations as well.Used with plain ice cream,it was fabulous.
  4. 3.Homemade Ice Cream – I used my eggless homemade Ice Cream .You can use store bought vanilla Ice cream or any flavour you like.
  5. 4.Plain and thickened chilled milk – As instructed in the recipe!
  6. Put 2 tbsp Badam Pisin per glass
  7. Pour Milk 1 to fill 1/4 of the glass.
  8. Over that pour Milk 2 to fill 3/4 of the glass.
  9. Add 2 scoops of Ice Cream per glass.
  10. Pour over 2 tbsp of the Nannari Syrup for each glass and serve immediately
  11. A lovely glass of Jil Jil Jigarthanda!
