Easy Refreshing Kokam Sherbet Recipe
recipeIngredient (used american measuring cup, 1 cup = 250 ml)
  • 10 to 12 kokam
  • 1 cup water
  • 10 tbsp sugar
  • 1 t/s citric acid / lime juice
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 t/s fennel seed powder
  • 1 t/s cumin seed powder
  • 1 tbsp chat masala
  • a pinch of hing (asofoetida)
  • few mint leaves
How to make the recipe?
  1. Soak kokam in about ½ cup water for about an hour Or overnight.
  2. Combine kokam plus water and all the ingredients except mint leaves. Grind them into a processor until smooth paste is formed. Add rest of water.
  3. Strain this mixture on a mesh strainer Or cloth. Squeeze the lefttover pulp. Discard the pulp. Collect this syrup in a bottle.
  4. Add mint leaves and store in the fridge. While serving add about 2 tbsp kokam sherbet and water. Mix well and don't forget to add ice cubes.
  5. Now relish this summer drink.
1. You can also grind the kokam rind in the processor.
2. It's important to strain this pulp Or you will have all the pulp and skin floating on your drink.
3. These are my choice of spices if you don't like them please don't add. However chat masala gives a unique flavor to the drink.
4. Just got a thought you can try Kokam Martini. Wish I could have thought this before. Just rub some salt on the edges/rim of the serving glass. Pour the kokam sherbet in it. Serve with mint and icecubes.
