This is a very nice cooling beverage, that goes particularly well with fish
4-5 kokam pieces soaked in water (for an hr) OR Kokam syrup (unsweetened)
Coconut Milk (2 glasses)
3-4 cloves of garlic
1 green chilli
Salt to taste
To make the coconut milk, grind fresh (not tender) coconut. The add a glass of water to it. Grind and strain it. To the remaining coconut residue, add another glass water, grind and strain. This will give you a good consistency of coconut milk.
As an alternative, you get coconut milk powder.. and you could use that! The instructions are usually on the packet.
If you are making your own coconut milk, add the garlic and chilli to the coconut itself. Else grind them separately, and add to the coconut milk.
Squish the kokam pieces using a tea strainer lightly (or use the unsweetened kokam syrup), and add it to the spicy coconut milk.
Chill the drink and serve! Its a nice pink coloured drink, and you can garnish with coriander leaves
