Kokum Sherbet

Kokum Sherbet

How lucky to have found fresh Kokum? Such a colourful fruit that makes a tangy & sweet sherbet.


  • 100 gms Kokum Fruit
  • 4 tbsp Sugar or Honey
  • 1-2 tsp Lime Juice
  • 1 tsp Cumin Powder (roasted)
  • ¾ tsp Black Salt or Rock Salt
  • 1 Bottle of Soda
  • Few Sprigs of Mint


Cut the kokum fruit into half & with the help of a small spoon, scoop out the seeds & discard.

Grind the kokum with ¼ cup water till it is smooth.

In a small saucepan, boil the kokum pulp with sugar & cumin powder till it reduces & has a thick consistency. Once cooled down to room temperature, add black salt & lime juice.

In a sherbet glass, add a heaped tablespoon of the kokum pulp, few mint leaves & top it up with chilled soda & ice cubes.


Note –

You can strain the sherbet after adding the soda too.

If fresh kokum is unavailable; you can  make it with dry kokum too.
