Jeera goli is a healthy and delicious, tangy Indian digestive candy, typically eaten after a meal. It provides relief from digestion-related issues like gas, indigestion, and bloating.
The main ingredient in this candy is jeera, or cumin seed, a spice much used in Indian cooking. Cumin has a long tradition of being used to treat digestion-related issues, so it is no wonder that this spice forms the basis of a digestive candy.
