Sol kadi (without coconut !!!) & Award

Fresh Sol, Amsol , Kokum/ Kokam  with buttermilk? Ya its so healthy and no coconut is added so I can drink as mush as I want! It tasted good as the buttermilk give very creamy flavor to it.


Ingredients:
  •  5-6 Sol / Kokum (used fresh )
  •  1 and 1/2 cup Butter Milk (store bought)
  • 1-2 green Chilies
  • 1 Garlic pod
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
  • Salt and Sugar as per taste.
  • Few fresh Coriander Leaves (chopped)
Method:
  Soak the fresh sol / kokum in a water for 1 hour or so. In a blender add this soaked sol / kokum and all above  ingredients. Blend everything till you get nice pink colored creamy sol kadi.

Before serving chill it of 1 hr or so. You can have with rice or just drink in these sunny summer days!


Note:
  • If you are using dried Sol / Kokum then soak it in hot water for 2-3 hrs or so.
  • Adjust the sugar, sol / Kokum as per your taste. 
I am updating the post as many blogger friends are asking me more about or they are new to Kokoum / Amsol. So I am attaching the fresh and dried Kokam/ Amsol Pics and also brief information according to wiki. 
 Kokum is made from a fruit from the plum family (Garcinia  indica/ Ratamba). The pulp and peels of the fruit are separated. The peels are  sun dried till  skin shrivels up but retains the red/purple color. This is now kokum/ sol, which is used as a souring agent in cooking and making kokum sherbet and sol kadhi. This we use in Saru, Kadi and also  if anyone is having acidity problem with Tamarind.

This also know as Amsol/Aamsul, Bindin, Biran, Bhirand, Bhinda, Bhrinda, Brinda, Kokum/Kokam, Katambi, Panarpuli, Kudam Puli, or Ratamba.

This is used in the cooking of coastal areas of Maharastra, Karnatkak & Goa.
