Rose basil sarbath is ideal for this summer. Basil seed is also known as sabja seed. Basil seed is a very good coolant. It quenches the thirst as well as cools the body. As we cannot take only basil, I made this with artificial rose syrup. Soon I will post with real rose syrup which I made for Aval Kitchen magazine recently.
Now let us see how to make
- Rose Syrup – 2 tblsp
- Sabja seed – ½ tsp
- Ice cubes – 5
- Lime juice – 1 tsp
- Water – 1 ½ cup
Soak sabja seeds in 3 tablespoon water and set aside for 15 minutes. Add rose syrup in a glass. Add water, lime juice and soaked sabja and mix it well. Finally add ice cubes and serve.
Add rose syrup and lime juice according to your taste.
Add few crushed mint leaves also. It gives nice flavor to the sarbath.
