Sol Kadhi is a drink from Goa and Konkan region of Maharashtra. It is made with kokum extract and coconut milk to which a little tempering is added. Sometimes it is also made plain without the addition of coconut milk.This is usually taken after eating spicy food as it cools down the digestive system. Kokam is an excellent antidote for acidity problems. It can be had with plain rice as well.
