What is Shikanji?

Shikanji or Nimbu Pani is an Indian Lemonade recipe. Shikanji is prepared with lemon juice, sugar, honey, and seasoned with salt, and chaat masala. Shikanji is a refreshingly cooling drink. And it is just an ideal drink for a hot summer day.

Let’s learn to make Shikanji in 6 easy to understand quick steps.


  • 12 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp sugar (I am using powdered sugar, as it dissolves fast)
  • 3 12 glasses of water
  • rock salt as per taste
  • 1 tsp chaat masala
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 4 slices lime
  • 3-4 cherries (optional)
  • 1 12 cup ice cubes


  1. Take a jug. Add lemon juice, powdered sugar, rock salt, chaat masala and honey to it. Mix well until sugar dissolves.
  2. Add sliced lime, sliced cherries, and 1 cup of ice.
  3. Mix well again, and let it cool for 2 minutes.
  4. Add remaining ice cubes to 4 serving glasses, and pour the Shikanji into them.
  5. Serve immediately. Enjoy!


Happy Cooking 🙂
