Elders in my family always said”If you follow the principles of Ayurveda in daily life,including food and food habits, you’ll seldom need any seperate medication,especially for minor ailments” Traditional Indian recipes are very much influenced by Ayurvedic principles..the ingredients used and the accompaniments are such that they balance each other and aid digestion. Solkadhi is one such drink thats always had with fish dishes and fish curries, to balance out the spices used and aid digestion.



  1. Mash the soaked kokum petals and extract the pulp. Grind the coconut with the garlic and chilli and 2 tbsp warm water. Strain the ground mixture through mesh and extract the coconut milk. Put back the remainder coconut add 1/2 cup water and grind fur
  2. Mix the kokum extract with the coconut milk. Strain the mixture. Add salt and sugar and mix. At this stage, you can add additional coconut cream or milk for making it nice and creamy. I used canned coconut milk. Garnish with finely chopped coriander

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
