Cold Soup

The bishop's weed or commonly known as ajwain or Ova in marathi is found in abundance in Muscat. I myself have a small plant in my little garden. Ajwain has a its own antiseptic properties & helps as a digestive aid & relief from abdominal discomfort due to digestion. Here's a cold soup/ welcome drink made from the Ajwain leaf mixed with buttermilk, a perfect summer coolant & excellent for digestion.

  1. 10-12 Ajwain leaves (washed)
  2. 4 methi seeds 
  3. ½ tsp cumin seeds
  4. ping of hing
  5. 1 tsp grated coconut
  6. salt as per taste
  7. 1 tsp oil
  8. 2 cups Buttermilk
  9. Water as needed
  1. Add oil in a small kadai, when it becomes hot add methi seeds let it splutter then add cumin seeds, hing, coconut & fry for 2 minutes; add the ajwain leaves. stir for a minute. Keep aside to cool. Grind this to a very smooth paste. mix with buttermilk, add water if required. If you want you can strain the cold soup and serve, serve it cool.
  2. Note: if you cannot find ajwain leaves, you may substitute the above recipe with Spinach leaves.
