The bishop’s weed is commonly known as ajwain or ओवा. I have a small plant in my little garden. Ajwain has its own antiseptic properties & helps as a digestive aid & relief from abdominal discomfort due to digestion. Here’s a cold soup/ welcome drink made from the Ajwain leaf mixed with buttermilk, a perfect summer coolant & excellent for digestion.

Ajwain plantIngredients

  • 10-12 Ajwain leaves (washed)
  • 4 methi seeds
  • ½ tsp cumin seeds
  • pinch of hing
  • 1 tsp grated coconut
  • salt as per taste
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 2 cups Buttermilk
  • Water as required

Method

  1. Add oil in a small kadai. When it becomes hot add methi seeds and let it splutter, then add cumin seeds, hing, coconut & fry for 2 minutes.
  2. Add the ajwain leaves. Stir for a minute.
  3. Keep aside to cool.
  4. Grind this to a very smooth paste. Mix with buttermilk, add salt & water- if required. If you want you can strain the cold soup and serve. Best served cold.

 

Note: if you cannot find ajwain leaves, you may substitute the above recipe with Spinach leaves.
