Have you ever loved a recipe so much during your travel, that you have prepared it as soon as you are back?
I do it all the time!
During my trip to Delhi in Summer last year, I got a chance to explore the food in the streets of Old Delhi.
After relishing some Chola Kulcha, Stuffed Parathas and Kebabs, we were looking for a refreshing drink that can help us with the scorching heat.
And that’s when my eyes fall on this light pink coloured Sharbat.
There was a huge line outside the shop, that made me eager about this drink.
When I asked, they told me its called, “Mohabbat Ka Sharbat“.
Made with Watermelon, one of my favourite Summer fruits, it is mixed with chilled milk and rose syrup.
In spite of the big line, we managed to get our hands on the drink and it was worth the wait.
This Watermelon and Milk based drink gave us an instant relief from the heat and I was amazed to see this new way of using watermelon in a drink.
It reminded me of Rooh Afza with a delicious Watermelon flavour in it. Yummy, is all I can say!
I made it at home recently, when I had some guests at home and since then me and my family have been relishing on this Summer drink.
So, if you are looking for a delicious drink to serve for your Summer evenings, you should definitely give this Sharbat a try.
It is a perfect summer quencher to infuse some life back into you.
What is Mohabbat Ka Sharbat?
It is a popular Summer drink from the streets of Old Delhi which is a delicious combination of Watermelon, Rose Syrup, Milk, Sugar, Ice Cubes and Rose Petals.
This drink became popular from a street shop/thela opposite Jama Masjid, run by a person called Nawab Qureshi who is also known as Pyaar Mohabbat Sharbat Wala.
You can also top this Watermelon Milk Sharbat with Vanilla Ice Cream or any other Ice Cream of your choice.
I often do this when I am in the mood of a dessert.
This sharbat is very popular during ramzan and eid.
