Jigarthanda‬ recipe - Jil Jil Jigarthanda recipe - Summer cooler Recipe - Famous Madurai Recipe

I never tasted Jigarthanda‬ in India. But after moving to SG, once I was with my Madurai friends in Murugan idli Kadai and It was pretty hot outside. I saw this drink while it was being made and I asked what it was and my friends explained about it. So I tried and after that I take it whenever I visit them. It is heavy but really refreshing. I wanted to do it at home and I asked for the recipe from my friends and I got it from them. I don't know this is traditional or not but it tasted really good.
