Jeera Kashayam (Cumin Seeds Juice)

Jeera_Kashayam_Cumin_Seeds_Juice_1 Cumin seeds (Jeera) is one of the important spice in Indian cooking and also a good medicine for small health problems. In Tamil it is called as Seeragam (also as Jeeragam).

Jeera kashayam is simply prepared by boiling cumin seeds in water. This kashayam gives relief from acidity, gastric problem. Also helps to cure urinary problems and cools our body. I drink this kashayam whenever I feel acidity.

Cooking time: less than 10 minutes


  • Cumin seeds – 1 table spoon
  • Water – 2 cups
  • Ghee – 2 drops


  • Dry roast cumin seeds in a empty pan till it splutters.
