Nutrition advice in a digestible, accessible format that empowers you to make informed choices in your kitchen.

50 Chapters

Each chapter is dedicated to a single recipe, highlighting its benefits, nutritional quotient, and the health conditions it addresses.

50 Regional Recipes

No green smoothies here! Each and every recipe is a riff on an existing local drink that has been consumed for years - but supercharged with superfoods and spices to make it healing and nourishing.

Nutrition, Designed Just For You

The recipes have been created with single-servings in mind, to extract the most out of each ingredient and to create a potent and delicious tonic.

Easy-To-Source Ingredients

The aim is to make health a smooth journey - and we make it easy for you to #findyourtonic by crafting recipes using everyday ingredients that are easily available to you in your Indian kitchen.

Seasonal Sips

Your body’s needs change from season to season - and so does the produce that’s available. Keeping this in mind, we’ve come up with recipes that work in summer, winter, monsoon and all-year-round.

Your Health Questions, Answered

This isn’t your average recipe book - it is a guide to help you navigate what ails you and find a solution, naturally. From learning how to prevent the onset of diabetes with paneer doda water to addressing hormonal imbalance (without pills!) using shatavary water, 50 Desi Super Drinks contains answers to a range of health concerns.
Some of the chapters and recipes you’ll find in the Book:
  • Sugarcane Juice: A traditional street drink that also happens to be a natural detox juice! At just under 57 calories per 100 ml, it contains Vitamin A, B12, C, calcium, iron, phosphorus and potassium

  • Coconut Milk & Jackfruit Smoothie: A vegan drink full of healthy fats and fibre, it helps bring down inflammation and cholesterol, protects the liver from alcohol damage and boosts the digestive system. 

  • Kokum Fig Sherbet: A tart, sweet drink, it is one of the best ways to prevent heat stroke in summers. Kokum can help stabilise appetite and curb cravings, while figs give you a natural energy boost. 

  • Buckwheat Tea: A natural prebiotic, buckwheat tea also contains a wide range of antioxidants, including rutin, which is known to lower the risk of cancer, blood clots and improves inflammation, blood pressure and your blood cholesterol profile. 

  • Desi Jasmine Tea: Brewed with the leaves and petals of jasmine, this tea acts as a natural laxative that can prevent gas and bloating and regulate the digestive system to overcome constipation. 

Common Question Answered In This Book

What is the best way to build immunity?

Compounds like curcumin (found in turmeric) and mangiferin (found in raw mangoes) can help combat infection and fight against lifestyle diseases. Our Turmeric Milk and Aam Panna recipes are immunity-boosters.

How can I improve digestion?

The enzyme “papain,” found in papaya, is a great way to keep your tummy healthy and regularise bowel movement. When combined with halim or garden cress seeds, you get the added benefit of good fats and iron. Our recipe for Papaya Juice With Halim Seeds leaves you feeling fuller while boosting gut health.

What is the best natural anti-ageing solution?

Ferulic acid - commonly found in topical serums and skincare products - helps keep the skin young and supple. Ragi or finger millet contains ferulic acid and also has the ability to stop the cross-linking of collagen, which is what makes skin lose elasticity. Our recipe for Ragi Ambali is one of the best anti-ageing concoctions you can consume for glowing skin.

What is the best way to burn fat naturally?

When you feel full for longer periods of time, you won’t overeat. Our recipe for Barley Water is the ideal blend of wholesome and low calories, which keeps you satiated and aids in fat loss.

What can I drink if I am allergic to cow’s milk?

Most people who cannot have cow’s milk because they are unable to digest it can switch to goat milk, which is nutrient-dense but easier to digest thanks to smaller fat globules. Our recipe for Rose Goat Milk With Sabja can be enjoyed hot or cold, by children and adults alike.

We’re all aware of the health advice our mothers and grandmothers have shared: eat oranges, amla and musambi to keep colds away. Take a spoonful of chyanwanprash everyday. Get some ghee into your system. Many of the health and immunity-boosting benefits of these foods can be gained from the warming and cooling drink recipes outlined in this book, including:

Kashmiri Kahwa:

Fragrant with spice and all things nice, this traditional green tea from Kashmir is soothing, with hints of saffron. It also revs up metabolism and curbs unwanted junk food cravings.

Carrot & Beetroot Kanji

Drink your way to a healthier, more alkaline gut with sun-fermented kanji, the Winter Wonder from Punjab. Learn how to get the fermentation process right with the right proportion of root vegetables and spices.

Turmeric Milk

Haldi-doodh, Turmeric Latte or Golden Milk - call it what you may - this comforting concoction helps heal your body from the inside out. We show you how to combine turmeric with the right fats and spices to get the most out of the actives present.
