Kokum, or Sol in Konkani, is largely found in the west coast regions of India and i wonder if one may call it as being a variant of Imli or Tamarind.

It's summer time once again and every morning the backyard is strewn with a bunch of these kokum berries fallen on the ground.
Picture 1 shows a fresh lot whereas Pic 2 shows a previous lot being sun dried for storage.

This kokum is used to make the very delicious, nourishing and refreshing Sol Kadhi or Kokum Curry, to be eaten with a nice par boiled rice or simply chilled and sipped along with a meal, for simple heavenly pleasures.

Here's a very nice recipe with pictures for making Sol kadhi.

Do enjoy.
