To make Kokum Coconut Kadhi, we have to know what is Kokum. Kokum is a fruit used as a souring agent in many parts of India and it is mellow in taste compared to tamarind. For me, how it can be a kadhi without besan? So, this Kokum Coconut Kadhi is my twist, by adding a little roasted besan (gram flour). This is both delicious and very refreshing. You can serve this as a soup or with rice. My son who is a very picky eater thoroughly enjoyed it! This is a quick and easy recipe which you must give it a try.
