Other ways to enjoy bhang are :

Bhang water: Pound cannabis leaves along with a little black pepper and sugar, dilute with water and drink up.

Bhang cocktail: Soak the ground leaves in warm water overnight to get rid of water-soluble impurities. Drain off, put in an airtight jar and add chosen spirit. Seal the container and leave it be for a day or so. Then, strain the liquid and voila, your potion is ready. Mixing with fruit juice is recommended.

Bhang pizza: Sprinkle ground leaves as topping on the pizza base and bake.

Bhang cake/halwa: Melt ghee in a pan, sprinkle finely crumbled leaves and stir gently for about half hour. The idea is to extract the THC (the chemical responsible for the high) into the fat. When the ghee’s done, sieve the mixture into a pan and leave to cool. Mix this fat with cake mix and bake. Or use this ghee to prepare halwa.

Bhang golees/pakodas: Golees are nothing but condiments and bhang leaves ground into a fine paste and rolled into peppery, chewy little balls. You could also add finely powdered leaves to ‘pakoda’ batter, dip veggies in it and deep fry on medium flame until lightly golden.
