While Kokum Sherbet mixes are easily available in the market, nothing can beat the taste, pulpy texture and pristine aroma of this fresh and natural Kokum Sherbet, prepared in your own kitchen. Jeera and black salt are perfect flavorings for this tangy drink, which has an enjoyable texture thanks to a little smart thinking – of grinding half the kokum coarsely. Although the procedure seems to have more than half a dozen steps, we assure you that once you have soaked the kokum it will take just a couple of minutes to have this peppy drink ready in your hand. A very refreshing Indian Drinks / Sherbats .
