Cold Soup

The bishop's weed or commonly known as ajwain or Ova in marathi is found in abundance in Muscat. I myself have a small plant in my little garden. Ajwain has a 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.
