Sol Kadhi, along the costal lines and Brinda in the southern parts of the country, Kokum or Garcina indica is a super food when it comes to tackling body heat and acidity. Ayurveda too has its mention as kokum is instrumental in controlling pitta levels in our body, which is body heat/acidity. This special and popular summer drink is served with almost every meal in the coastal region of Maharashtra during summer days.
