Jigarthanda

Jigarthanda or Cold Heart is a Madurai special super cool drink available in most of the places in Tamilnadu. I had my first Jigarthanda with my husband 🙂 in Coimbatore from a small kiosk. It’s like a milkshake which is light cream and brown or ivory in colour.

It is creamy drink with milk, home made fresh cream (പാല്‍പ്പാട or Malai), almond gum (Badam Pisin), sarsaparilla root syrup (നറുനീണ്ടി or Naruneendi or Nannari syrup), sugar and ice-cream (preferably vanilla flavour) in it. I’m recommending all the reader and bloggers here to have it atleast once if you visit Tamil Nadu or you can make it at home..
