Mogre Ka Sharbat is a fragrant & soothing sharbat made from mogra/ indian jasmine for summers
While the summery breeze in the night carried along the fragrance of mogra from the side window making the atmosphere soothing over the daily stress & emotions. The morning they would be adorned as jewels in the ears. My ammi loved the fragrance of mogra. When we shifted to a new place from the hush bush of the city life, she made sure to plant the mogra plant on her side window of her room. She loved these fragrant flowers so much that her ears would be adorned with these beautiful flowers. She always said it gave her a soothing effect.
It is said the when the person goes from your life all you have is memories. And these memories become such a precious treasure to hold on each one. You try to revisit & relive them by associating to different things. Mogra/ Indian Jasmine for me holds for me one such memory of my beautiful mother with a ever smiling face. She loved her garden and was always worried about it till her last days. When Mayuri from Mayuri’s Jikoni, asked bloggers to send one recipe special to mothers or want to dedicate to her for mother’s day, I thought why not a recipe made from her favorite flower mogra. Mogre ka sharbat is very soothing drink with delicate flavors. Happy Mother’s Day.
On this mother’s day few of my fellow bloggers have also prepared their mother’s favorite recipes. Please do check out..
