The word ‘Jigarthanda’ quite famous in the city of Madurai, is a name that evokes memories of good times and great taste. The drink has a texture that has been described by consumers as being second to none. It is shortened to ‘Jigar’ and that’s a relief for tourists that want to sample the drink. But if you want a neat little tongue twister before downing your drink, please have a go at the name.

But the good news is you don’t have to go all the way to Madurai to make a pitcher of Jigar. Here is a recipe that you can try at home with some interesting ingredients to make you and the inhabitants of your home perfectly happy.

Health Benefits

Milk is the major ingredient in the recipe and it contains loads of calcium, protein, potassium, phosphorus, vitamins and a host of other nutrients that the body needs for its metabolism activities. Calcium helps to build and maintain healthy bones and teeth. Protein is a bodybuilder and it repairs torn muscle tissues.

Potassium keeps the blood pressure normal while phosphorus is strong enough to generate energy for the body and also strengthen the bones. The presence of vitamin B12 in milk means that the red blood cells in the human body can remain healthy just as vitamin A helps to strengthen the immune system.

The recipe is rich in carbohydrate. Carbohydrate is noted for its ability in energizing the body system and making it active all day.
