Water is very essential for us but not all of us especially kids drink water when asked to. So, atleast twice a week, I make cumin water because cumin has a very cooling effect to the body and also aids digestion.


  • Cumin - 2tsp
  • Water - 1.5 litres


  • STEP 1
    Take 1.5 litre normal water in a pot.
  • STEP 2
    Add 2 tsp cumin seeds.
  • STEP 3
    Place on stove-top on high flame and boil water for 20 mins.
  • STEP 4
    Remove from stove-top and keep aside to bring it to room temperature.
  • STEP 5
    Strain the cumin water to get a clear cumin water.
  • STEP 6
    Cumin Water is ready. Drink it whenever you are thirsty for a happy healthy body...
