JIGARTHANDA (MADURAI SPECIAL) - BEAT THE HEAT - SUMMER COOLANT RECIPES

JIGARTHANDA (MADURAI SPECIAL) - BEAT THE HEAT - SUMMER COOLANT RECIPES

Jigarthanda is a yummy drink having Milk, badam pisin and nannari syrup as main ingredients. It is a rich and scrumptious drink loaded with cooling properties so it is perfect to drink during summer. This jigarathanda is very popular in Madurai, tamilnadu.

Then main ingredient in authentic jigarthanda is Almond gel (Badam Pisin). It is very good to cool our body from heat. It is good for kids also during summer to reduce the body heat.
It tastes great even with simple chilled sweetened milk with any flavours. I am planning to post various drink with this badam pisin here in the coming days.
The another important cooling ingredient is sarsaparilla syrup(Nannari syrup). It is very good to beat the body heat in summer. We can make juices/sarbath with this flavourful nannari syrup.
During my child hood, my father would brought a big full bottle of nannari syrup during summer and will make sarbath and have it on daily basis at afternoon time.
The third main ingredient milk will be boiled till it becomes thick to make this drink. This reduced milk will gives nice taste and richness and makes it yummy.

During my chldhood i have never tasted this jigarthanda, not even seen :). Later while working I  have first tasted this jigarthanda at murugan Idly kadai few times and also once in Madurai.too. Then I became a very big fan for this delicious jigarthanda.

Actually I have already posted one simple version of jigarthanda in my blog. Please check the below link

Please check the below links for mawa nad caramel syrup recipe

But in this recipe I have added/changed few things in this recipe.They are khoya/mawa and caramelsyrup. In simpler version I just added sugar with the milk. But here I added caramel syrup which gives nice flavor to this jigarthada and almost gives that authentic flavor and taste. I got this idea of adding caramel syrup from a youtube video. I loved the flavor of using caramel in this jigarathanda and it closely meets the authentic taste.
Another ingredient is khoya/mawa. It is nothing but the milk is reduces until it comes to solid state. Here I have used instant mawa using milk powder. But you can use the mawa which was prepared in traditional way, which is from milk.

NOTES:
  • Instead of badam pisin you can use plain agar agar jelly (unflavored).
  • Instead of sarsaparilla (Nannari) syrup you can use rose syrup too.
  • Instead of caramel syrup you can use plain sugar also, but caramel will gives nice flavor.
  • You can avoid khoya and can add thickened milk only.
  • Adjust the quantities of the badam pisin, milk, nannari syrup and caramel syrup according to you taste and the size of the glass you are using.
  • Sometimes nannari syrup will be already having sweetness. So adjust the caramel syrup/sugar accordingly.
