Goan Sol Kadhi is a popular appetizer drink made of Kokum & Coconut Milk. Sol Kadi goes well with delicious sea food . It is known for its digestive properties and also is a very good detoxifying juice. In my today’s recipe, I have made two variations of sol wadi: with and without coconut. Both taste superb and good for health.
Sol kadhi is one of the famous drink which is served around konkan areas . It is our tradition or culture and you can say that our non veg thali is just incomplete without sol kadhi. There are many different ways people in Goan, Malvan prepare this kadi. The one without coconut milk is called futi kadhi in Goa. Some prefer it futi and some prefer with coconut milk. Let’s see how to prepare our authentic Konkani sol kadhi .
