Sol Kadhi

Sol Kadhi is a famous drink of the Kokan-Maharashtra region. This drink helps in  digestion and also has cooling properties. Sol kadhi is soo refreshing drink, that I make it quite often replacing buttermilk. And the lovely part is the drink is a light baby pink colour, which is just so soothing in seeing itself.

I had tasted sol kadhi first time after my marriage, when we - my husband  and my in-laws, had gone for lunch to a hotel to have Maharastrian Thali in Pune, and I enjoyed the drink at the first taste and learnt it sooner. In marati Kokum  is called Aamsul and so related this drink is called sol kadhi.

Sol Kadhi is an all in one drink  - an appetizer before meals, served with rice in meals, or even as a refreshing digestive drink after mealsIts made with Kokum fruit and coconut milk, and is served hot{with tempering, with rice as kadhi} and as well as chilled too. 

There are two ways to enjoy the drink. One without tempering and one with tempering. 
Today I am posting the one without temperingWill post with tempering version sooner.

Sol Kadhi Without Tempering:
Ingredients:
Kokum 6 - 8
Hot Water 1/2 cup 
Water 1/2 cup
Fresh grated / pieces of coconut 1 
Green chili 1, medium sized
Garlic 2 small pods
Freshly chopped coriander leaves few
Salt as per taste
Sugar 1 tsp {optional}

Method:
In a bowl soak kokum adding hot water keeping it for an hour or two.

Squeeze kokum properly, so that all the pulp is released in the water{we will be using this water for the drink}.
Lets make coconut milk...
In a mixer add grated / pieces of coconut and little water and grind it properly and strain the coconut until all the milk is released. Transfer the milk to a bowl.   

In a mixer, grind green chili and garlic. Add it to the coconut milk.

Now add the kokum water{discarding the kokum pieces}and mix once. 
Add salt, sugar{optional} and chopped coriander leaves. Mix well. Refrigerate for an hour. Then strain it, so that the chili, garlic and coriander all gets strained away leaving its taste only.
Serve in glass and enjoy chill Sol Kadhi...

  16. 3 Studies SHOW Why Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you actually burn fat by eating coconut fat (also coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 studies from big medicinal magazines are sure to turn the traditional nutrition world upside down!
