How to make Jigarthanda/Jil JilI Jigarthanda – A Madurai Special Summer Cooler

My Tip:

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. 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, 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.
