ROSE LEMON DRINK

I got some roses yesterday, which were red and very beautiful. I kept some of them to the goddesses in my pooja room and the remaining flowers in fridge. I was thinking of making murabba, which i tasted at my aunt's place at Bangalore. She had grown many rose plants in her garden. I liked her home made murabba. But i had very few roses, it was not sufficient for murabba. Then i thought of making drink, perfect for this summer heat. Here is the recipe.
ROSE LEMON DRINK

WHAT YOU NEED:

Rose petals - 3/4 cup

Sugar - 1/4 cup or per your taste

Lemon - juice of 1 lemon

Water - 3 cups
ROSE LEMON DRINK


HOW TO MAKE:



First wash rose petals very well for 3- 4 times. Then soak the petals in a little crystal salt for half an hour. This is to remove any dirt or pesticides.

Discard the water and again wash.

Heat a cup of water along with sugar, dissolve it with spoon.

Then add rose petals and boil for 5 minutes over low flame.

Keep covered for half an hour to one hour.

Strain the liquid through a strainer.

Add lemon juice and 2 cups of water. Stir well.

Refrigerate till it is chilled.

Serve chilled rose lemon drink in tall glasses.
