Solkadhi is a type of drink, an appetizer originating from the Indian subcontinent, usually eaten with rice or sometimes drunk after or along with the meals. Popular in the coastal regions of Goa, southern Maharashtra and northern Karnataka, it is made from coconut milk and kokum, aamsol or aamsul, the dried fleshy skin of Garcinia indica ('ratambe' in Marathi) whose anthocyanin pigments provide a deep purple-pink colour.
Solkadhi is prepared with liquid extract of fresh coconut known as coconut milk; however, nowadays you can also get this extracted milk in TetraPak. The coconut milk so obtained is usually mixed with agal or kokum, a little bit of salt, mustard seeds and/or chili-garlic paste is added for taste and enhancing the probiotic contents.
