  1. Ever since my holiday in Miami where I first tasted mint lemonade I’ve been searching for a good recipe. This one seems to be IT! Will try this in Summer- can’t wait!!

  2. The picture itself looks so refreshing. I have never made one but will soon. With the summer on and its around 42 degrees of temperature this drink is really required. Also, i think its muchhhh better that packed and can drinks.

    Manjula, really some great recipes in here.

  3. Hi Aunty,

    Thanks a lot for providing such valuable information on all kinds of Indian Recepies. Am newly married and everyday i try out something new from your website. That’s how i impress my husband B’coz as its very commonly said that ” THE WAY TO A MAN’s HEART IS THRU HIS STOMACH ” …. 🙂


  4. Man..this lemonade recipe really worked my family thought that I bought it from a resturant! Manjula thanks for helping me inspire my family.

    Thanks again,

  5. Thank you very much for this web site! Within the last year and a half I broke up with a very special Indian girl and was spoiled on a daily basis with Ayurvedic and traditional Indian cooking from her mother. I stupidly after almost three years never learned how to cook the food properly. Your site has been a savior to me! I take my laptop into my kitchen and it feels as if I have my very own personal chef. Thanks again.
