khakshir on the small package that I purchased from an Iranian grocery store was teff. In my research I found out that khakshir is also called London rockets, scientific name Sisymbrium irio. That's not all, in addition to those two names above, to make the matter more confusing khakshir was referred to as mugwort on a few websites. Based on the limited information available on this subject it seems that Sisybrium irio (London rocket) is a more correct term.
4 tablespoons khakshir, rinsed with cool water a few times as described above
1 tablespoon table sugar
1 tablespoon rose water *optional
- Pour the khakshir seeds into a medium sized pitcher, top with 2 (8 ounce) glasses of water.
- Dissolve sugar in a little warm water then add to the pitcher. Add a tablespoon rose water, stir well and pour into ice-filled glasses. For a slight variation you can add a teaspoon of tokhm-e sharbati (chia seeds) to the drink.
