kokum sharbat is one of the popular summer drinks to beat the heat. Learn how to make kokum juice at home.

kokum sherbet is made from kokum, jeera, black salt and sugar.

Jeera and black salt are perfect flavourings for this tangy kokum juice, 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 kokum juice ready in your hand. It is a very refreshing Indian Drink/Sherbat.

To make kokum sherbet, combine the semi-dried kokum and ½ cup of water in a bowl, mix well and keep aside for 30 minutes. Strain the kokum water and keep it aside. Blend the soaked kokum in a mixer using half the kokum water and blend till coarse. Keep aside. Combine the remaining half kokum water and sugar in a small non-stick pan, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 3 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Cool it. Add the coarse kokum mixture and mix well. Strain it using a strainer. Finally add cumin powder. When serving, add 2 tablespoon of this syrup into a tall glass along with ¾ cup of chilled water.

While kokum sharbat 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.
