Jal Jeera

How do you explain your favorite beverage to a European?

I started with “Jal-Jeera means water of cumin and is a very popular cold drink which is also served as an appetizer. It consists of roasted cumin powder, mint, coriander, black pepper, black salt, lemon juice and sugar. Then I went about describing its taste and how its prepared etc etc.
His reaction: So after eating all this spicy food, you cool yourself off by drinking spices!!!

I am wondering what his reaction will be when I describe to him that few of the best indian traditional meals are made over cow dung cakes. (gobar ke kande)
