Masala Shikhanji (modinagar Special Lemonade)
Masala shikhanji at the outset might look like plain lemonade spiced up a bit. But for someone like me from the Southern part of India this is totally different from what we call lemonade. In our homes lemonade is an over sweet drink with lemon, sugar and water but Shikhanji is totally different from this version. What makes it taste different is the addition of cumin powder, mint, ginger and rock salt. With food stalls from various parts of the country coming up in Bangalore, Shikhanji stalls with boards " Shikhanji from Modinagar" has started gaining attention here. Modinagar is situated in Uttar Pradesh and this drink hails from this town.
