  1. That's entirely new to me Vaidehi. Is it a traditional Maharashtrian recipe?

  2. Heard a lot about Solkadhi but excuse me for my insufficient knowledge,i always thought it meant Fish curry .Now i know wht does this awesome drink is and how it is made..thnks for sharing..it looks so very wonderful !

  3. Love your version Vaidehi. I make mine minus the coconut milk, cumin seeds etc.

    Happy Holidays and happy new year!

  4. solkadhi looks very delicious

  5. Hi Vaidehi I want to try solkadhi
    just one question , is there any other option for kokum.. :)

  6. Hi Pallavi,
    Solkadhi means Kadhi made with 'Kokum' which is also known as 'sol' or 'sul'. Therefore there is no way to replace kokum with any other ingredients. Then it won't be solkadhi..

    Btw you will get 'Kokum Concentrate' which is also known as 'Kokum Aagal'. You can use this concentrate to make solkadhi.
    'kokum Aagal' is unsweetened and pure concentrate of Kokum and it is different than 'kokum sharbat'.

  7. Hello Vaidehi, thank u so much for ur reply n explaination too. I'll chk in stores if i get either of kokum or its concentrate..actually I have never tasted solkadhi, have heard of it a lot...will try now..thanks.

  8. Hi Pallavi,

    thanks for your comment and reply...actually you will get Kokum (Aamsool) easily than kokum concentrate..I am sure you will definitely like it..Enjoy!
