SolKadi / Kokum Curry/ Kokum Drink with Coconut

SolKadhi /kokum curry

Kokum Curry also known as Sol Kadhi is a very popular drink in Konkan region especially in Goa and Maharastra. My granny prepares this almost everyday in Goa. It can be prepared with or without coconut. It's usually served with hot steamed rice or you can have it as a drink with your food. I like to have it both way. This Kadhi is also very good for digestion purpose.

Preparing this kadhi is very simple and it doesnot need to be cooked on a stove. Just soak some kokums, extract coconut milk, do the tempering and its done in minutes. I prepared this recently and enjoyed our simple meal with rice, Grilled Chicken and SolKadhi.


Kokum petals - 12-15

Garlic - 5-6 cloves (crushed)

Green chillies - 2 (chopped)

Few Coriander leaves

Salt to taste

Coconut milk - 1 cup
