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.
Our group Shhhhh Cooking Secretly decided to go for Goan Cuisine this month. I was paired with Kriti Singhal Agrawal who blogs at - Krispy Kadhai .. Do check out her space for yummy recipes.
Kokums ... 8-10
Coconut milk .. 200 ml. (I used ready tetra pack one)
Garlic paste ... 1/2 tsp
Green chilli paste .. 1/4 tsp (adjust to your liking)
Crushed cumin seeds .. 2 pinches or use whole
Curry leaves ... 2-3 (crushed with hand)
Coriander leaves .. for garnishing.
Salt ......... to taste
Oil .... 1 tsp
1. Soak the kokums in warm water for few hours.
2. Crush them with hand nicely.
4. Take the garlic and chilli paste in a strainer and pour some liquid over it and press with the spoon to extract the flavours.
Sol Kadhi is actually my husbands favourite drink. When we go to dine out specifically Maharashtrian or Malvani Thali, he often orders this as it has digestive properties which is essential after a heavy meal. I on the other hand, happily sip on aam panha as I dont like the garlic and the coconut milk combo but I love Kokam Sharbet. Haha.. strange tastes. Great post Shobhaji.ReplyDelete
I tasted it for the first time and it was quite good. You can skip the garlic part if you don't like..Delete
Thanks dear :)
Never tried this dish. I like adding kokum to dahl so Iam sure this will taste great.love the colour of the kadhi. Love your serving dishes too.ReplyDelete
Thanks Mina.. we also add kokums to dal and Sindhi kadhi usually..Delete

You Sol Kadhi is spot-on, Shobha-ji. Now that summer is here, Sol Kadhi will be a regular in my home. I am a person who prefers Savoury food and so Sol Kadhi trumps Kokum Sarbat any time. :)ReplyDelete

I've not tasted sol kadhi but have heard about it. Will definitely love to try this drink as it looks very tempting. Love the colour and didn't know that kokum is good for acidity.ReplyDelete
I made it for the first time too Mayuri.. you will love it I am sure.Delete
Amazing isn't it, how the not very good looking kokum can produce this colourful and refreshing drink! I haven't tasted sol kadhi with garlic earlier and now should try it out!ReplyDelete
It really tasted good with garlic flavour infused into it.Delete
Love sold kadhi to the core, especially during summers.. lovely share !ReplyDelete
