Kokum is a traditional favourite in many parts of south and western India, and the condiment is quite famous for the indigenous sol kadhi.

Here is an age-old recipe for an appetizer that is believed to unfailingly make every drinker hungry, so it is best to serve this before a meal!

It is also a very effective coolant. This easy to make appetizer does not even need any cooking, but of course one needs to develop a taste for kokum as it has a unique flavour which requires a bit of getting-used-to!
