How to make the recipe
Wash tamarind and soak it in ½ cup warm water till it softens.
Meanwhile, pluck the flowers from neem sprigs. Or alternate quick method: add the neem sprigs to a thin cloth, bring the edges of the cloth together so that they don’t fall off from the cloth. Hold the edges tightly and hit the cloth on to the kitchen counter several times. Neem flower or petals get separated from the sprigs and fall of in the cloth, collect them and set aside.
Add grated jaggery to another one cup water, stir till it melts off. Filter it through a coffee strainer to another bowl, filter the tamarind pulp or water as well to the same bowl.
Add rest of the ingredients. Mix well.
