there are a couple of juice recipes, that is nostalgic to me and kokum juice recipe and kokam fruit is one among them. i personally, big fan of kokam fruit and especially the sour leaves from the kokam tree. back then, my first preference was eating the fruit as it rather than converting it to juice and the consume it. moreover, even the leaves are edible and i used to love the combination of sour leaves with sweet ripe fruit. but things changed gradually and i hardly find any trees left now and i can only fetch these awesome fruits via stores. and most of the time it would be sun-dried which can only be used for juice and rasam.

furthermore, some important tips, recommendations and serving ideas for a perfect kokum juice recipe. firstly, the recipe can be prepared from fresh fruits or store bought dry kokum fruits. i have used the dry version, but if you have access to fresh ones then remove the seeds and blend it to a thick pulp followed by the same procedure as dry version. secondly, i have used 2 cups of sugar and it should be ideal for this recipe. but depending on your preference and sour level, you can plus or minus the quantity. lastly, i recommend using 2 tbsp of concentrated kokum syrup to 2 cups of water while preparing the kokum fruit juice. also, add some ice while serving for the chill effect.

finally, i would like to highlight my other beverage recipes collection with this post of kokum juice recipe. it includes recipes like, thandai, mango milkshake, bottle gourd juice, masala soda, badam milk, mango lassi, nimbu paani, sol kadhi, buttermilk, chocolate milkshake, cold coffee and oreo milkshake. further, i request you to check my other recipes collection like,
