Even though its a milkshake it is popular by name juice. Chilled ellu juice or sesame seeds milkshake is prepared and sold in many shops in Karavali region of Karnataka. Especially during hot summer days you can find or get to drink this tasty and creamy juice.

Ellu or sesame seeds are considered as hot if roasted. But unroasted sesame seeds are considered as cold or they will help in reducing the body heat.
