Kokum Sherbet Recipe

September 26, 2016

Kokum sherbet is a refreshing drink for summer. Kokum controls pitta; other sour flavored foods will aggravate Pitta. You can find it dried in Indian groceries-- and occasionally a related fruit if found fresh in Chinese markets where it will be called mangosteen.I borrowed this recipe from my favorite Indian food blog of the moment: vegrecipesofindia.com

  • 1 cup kokum fruits, chopped or dry kokums
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 5-6 cardamoms powdered or crushed
  • 1 tsp roasted cumin powder
  • a pinch or two of black salt or salt (optional)

1: rinse dry kokum in water. 2: soak them in 2 cups of water for 3-4 hours. 3: grind kokum in a blender with some of the soaking water to a smooth mixture. 4: boil sugar with the remaining soaking water till the mixture becomes thick. 5: cool the sugar syrup and then add the kokum mixture to it. 6: add the powdered cardamom and cumin powder. 7: mix well and store in an airtight bottle or jar in the fridge. To make a refreshing drink spoon a table spoon or 2 of the sherbert into cool water or over ice.
