With every Goan Thaali you get a small katori of Kokum Saar which is meant to be a digestive and drunk at the end of the meal. I have seen many local Goans pour this over their rice and eat it that way too . Either ways this is delicious.There are many different versions of this drink . In Maharashtra ghee , cumin and jaggery are used . The Goan Thali comes with this rustic version.
8-10 Petals of Kokum
1-2 Green Chilies Minced.
Minced Garlic - Just a hint , 1/4 teaspoon.
Dot of Hing.
Touch of Sugar - 1 Teaspoon
1 Liter Water.
Chopped Dhania Greens
Soak everything but coriander greens for 1-2 hours , adjust flavors and serve with a garnish of coriander greens. You will ask for another cup full I promise you !
