 Coconut1 (milk extracted)
 Green chilli1
 Cumin seeds1⁄2 Teaspoon
 Sugar/Powdered jaggery To Taste
 Salt To Taste (little in quantity)
 Cilantro1 Teaspoon


Soak Kokum in hot water for 1/2 hr. . Grind green chilli and cumin to paste

Once the kokum water turns pink, add coconut milk to it. Depending on how sweet you want to make your kadhi, add jaggery. (I like it sour so I put very little jaggery. ). Add salt. Add cumin-chilli paste. Add cilantro.
In winter, I warm up this Kadhi a bit and enjoy it as a soup.
In summer, enjoy it cold or at room temperature.

Some like to add some garlic or ginger to the cumin-chilli paste.
