Not very nutrient rich, but better than aerated sugar laden drinks. For a change I added kalakhatta syrup as this drink tastes nice this way. Coriander, chillies, and other ingredients give it an Indian feel and perk up the taste.

Add soda just before serving. If you want more sweet add sugar subsitute. When you are bored to drinking chaas make this for lunch and enjoy the difference.

Although the name seems kind of a mismatch, the drink is quite nice! its refreshing and best served super chill,,,almost on the rocks! The jeera stops it from being too sweet and the coriander adds that freshness to it!
