The name Sol Kadhi tempts me into calling this recipe, soup for the soul! This chilled soup/drink which requires a minimum amount of effort is not only a perfect summer soup which aids your body’s cooling system; it also contains the extracts of the Miracle weight loss fruit, Garcinia!
I am a Science student. During my grad school, as a part of our curriculum and grading, we were supposed to work in tandem with the industry experts and complete a “project”. Nachiket and I formed a team to tackle this humungous task ahead of us. For the life us, we did not have an inkling of an idea that this project would be of least importance to us professionally. We put in about 16 hours a day to come with some amazing results. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t change much about that project because it was the first glimpse of our professional lives and the people we would turn out to be. But, I probably would work only for 10 hrs? or 12? 😀
Anyways, the project was when I came across the benefits of Garcinia. While many species of the same exist, the coastal regions of India use Kokum or Garcinia Indica as an acidic agent (for souring) for their food. One of the many recipes it is used for is Sol Kadhi. This Sol kadhi recipe highlights the flavors of this fruit in a chilled soup which is traditionally consumed in copious amounts to beat the summer heat.
Now that you heard the story, here are the facts:
- Are Garcinia Indica & Garcinia Cambogia same? Different species but same benefits
- Does it really aid weight loss? Research says it does but I have no proof
- Just like it is believed that regular consumption of turmeric keeps cancer and Alzheimer’s at bay, same is the weight loss effects of garcinia.
I say, when something as tasty as Sol Kadhi is beneficial to you, why not?! And it makes the best soup for this sultry summer! Here is the recipe for:
