    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 2 tablespoons coriander seeds
    • 2 tablespoons cumin seeds
    • 1 (8cm) piece root ginger
    • 3 lemons, juiced
    • 3 tablespoons honey
    • 720ml water

    Method
    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:6hr  ›  Ready in:6hr15min 

    1. Soak the coriander and cumin seeds in about 240ml water for about 2 hours.
    2. Grind together ginger, coriander and cumin seeds.
    3. Let it sit for an hour at least and you will see a sediment at the bottom. Strain it, squeeze the pulp and you can add more water to the pulp, regrind it and go through the straining process one more time.
    4. Add the lemon juice and the honey (the amounts of these depends on how sweet and sour you want it to be). Let it sit for a few more hours - you will see it clearing out at which point it is ready to be devoured!
    5. Go ahead and drink without any qualms unless of course you do not like ginger or have allergies to it.

    Tip

    Drink only the clearer part, the settled whitish part might be hard to strain off so you just have to careful pouring it in glasses. There will still be a tiny amount of settling but do not worry about it.
