Sol Kadi with Kokum Sorbet| How to make Sol Kadhi with Kokum Sorbet | Traditional Summer Cooler Sol Kadi recipe|

My take on traditional & famous recipe from Goan, Konkan and Malvan region, Sol Kadi with Kokum Sorbet is an integral part of this cuisine. It’s a vegan and gluten-free drink.

A very famous drink Sol kadi is usually served with main meals. The main ingredients to make this delicious cooler are coconut milk and Kokum sharbat/Kokum juice.

 

Kokum sorbet

Komum sorbet reminds me of ice gola/slush, which we used to have in our childhood, licking juicy syrupy crushed ice on stick, drizzled with different flavours of summer juices like kala khatta, kairi panna, orange and khus to name a few.

 

Medley of flavours :

The Sol Kadi is full of spicy, sweet, tangy and sour flavours.This medley of flavours creates music inside your mouth.  it’s known as summer coolant too.

 

Easy to make at home Sol kadi with Kokum sorbet :

I have served Sol Kadi with Kokum Sorbet which reminds me of ice Gola/slush.

You can make this wonderful drink easily in  your kitchen rather than buying it readymade from the stores.

It would quench your thirst during summers and would keep you cool.

I have shared homemade kokum sharbat recipe here.

Procedure to make kokum sharbat and sorbet :

Soak the kokum pods in warm water for 30 to 45 minutes so that it fluffs up nicely to extract the juices.

 

Squeeze juices from Kokum pods, drain the pods and retain the warm water with the extract in it.

Crush them roughly till they come together. Add the coconut milk, kokum concentrate, crushed garlic and chilli spice paste and stir well to combine.

Taste it and adjust seasoning as required.Garnish the Solkadi with mint leaves or chopped coriander and place in the fridge.

Add salt, sugar, and cumin powder. Transfer this to a metal/steel container or ice cubes tray. Place this in freezer for 8 hours.
Once it’s partially set, scoop it out with ice cream scooper/spoon, and place 2 scoops in each glass. Kokum sorbet is ready.

    Please let me know whether kokum is available up north under which name

  2. Lata Lala

    Thank you ionamarie for stopping by my post. It’s known as Garcinia Indica/ vrikshamla. You can ask for Kokum (wet) in grocery stores.
    It’s available in Goa and Maharashtra too.

  3. Anshu

    Looks incredibly good and making a sorbet of sol kadi sounds a terrific idea. Gonna try it out soon!!

  4. Priya srinivasan

    Wow looks refreshing! I tasted kokum this vacation when Archana bought some during the Hyderabad trip.
    Love how you made the ice cubes/crushed ice from kokum extract! Perfect drink to enjoy with a scrumptious meal!

    1. Lata Lala

      Thank you Priya. This is supposed to be the best summer cooler.

  5. amrita roy

    Years back I had a kokum drink after a Goan meal during my stay at Goa… Don’t remember the name of the drink but your kokum drink reminded me that… Looks good

    1. Lata Lala

      Yes Amrita this is the same drink you are talking about. You can have Sol kadi after or before meals.
      Thanks for writing in.

  6. I remember my mum using kokum in Gujarati daal, I have never tried sol kadhi but now I have seen this recipe want to make asap. Sorbet looks delicious.

    1. Lata Lala

      We too use sukka kokum for making dal Jagruti. Sol kadi is such a great summer cooler and works wonders for stomach. I am a huge fan of sol kadi.
      Please do try this and I am sure you will yearn more of it.
      Thanks dear.

  7. sasmita sahoo

      Thank you.

    Sol kadhi with a sorbet, that is an interesting recipe Lata. Such a perfect summer drink. I’ve tasted sol kadhi only once in Goa.

    1. Jayashree

      I love Sol kadhi, it tastes amazingly good but never made it at home. I always have it at my sister’s place, time for me to make this one. Good reminder Lata

      1. Lata Lala

        Jayashree please do try fresh at home it tastes delicious. Thanks dear.

    I have always been wanting to use kokum and make this kadhi. It looks so comforting and delicious. Next time I find it, will definitely try the recipe.

    1. Lata Lala

      Hi Praneetha. The best way to use kokum is to make sol kadi out of it. Please do try this and I am sure you will love it.
      Thanks dear.

    2. Lata Lala

      Kokum kadhi is worth trying Praneetha. I keep making it quite often during summers. It’s so refreshing.
      Thanks for dropping by.

    I have used Kokum in sambhar. This is nice idea to use it in Kadhi. Love the fusion of flavors

    1. Lata Lala

      Thank you Sapna. Yes this is a quintessential summer drink of Maharashtra. I love making this quite often.

  11. Lathiya

    We usually use kokum to make fish curry but it’s new for me to use it in a drink. Looks delicious.

    1. Lata Lala

      Thank you Lathiya. Sol kadhi is very famous drink here in Maharashtra during summers. It’s such a great coolant.

  12. ARCHANA

    Looks yummy Lata. We love sol kadhi and make it without coconut milk too. Of course, it is used as an appetizer but more as an accompaniment with rice. It is considered to be an antacid. Lovely share.

    1. Lata Lala

      True Archana it’s used both the ways. We live in the form of Kadhi during peak summers.
      Thank you.
