Jhol – Traditional Drink of Mandi

Jhol – Traditional Drink of Mandi

During the visit to Prashar Lake 48 km from Mandi Town, I preferred Homestay at Nandli village18 km from Mandi Town (Mandi – Prashar Road). Upon the request for Himachal Pradesh traditional food, the lady of the house served and enhanced my knowledge about a special traditional drink of the Mandi district known as ‘Jhol‘.

Jhol is always a part of the cuisine served during marriages, especially in the Mandi district. It is prepared by boiling lassi and adding Tadka/Chaunk (containing ghee, coriander seeds/leaves, green chili, and salt).

She said many preferred to drink Jhol via glass instead of the bowl.

It was very very tasty. Thanks for the preparation – said I.
