As the summer approaches I miss the nimboo-pani (lemonade) my mother use to make for us. Before the raw mango arrived, it was nimbu-pani or chhaas. After arrival of raw mangoes in market, aam-panna was regular. Every-day after reaching home after school, a glass of nimboo-pani with some mint leaves was a treat for us.
I sometimes make nimbu-pani for my daughter, but we siblings in our childhood had it more often. In fact, our humble nimbu-pani was the welcome drink in most household. Those were days when un-healthy colas or other ready-made drinks hadnâ€™t made their place in our homes.
So, while thinking of making something for kids while keeping summer season in mind, a thought cropped. Why not make a cake which uses mint, lemon and chhaas? So, here is a simple cake full of flavors. Iâ€™m sure itâ€™s one bite will bring smile on your lips and take you memory down the lane.
