Sailing out from Goa and the coastal regions of Maharashtra, Solkadhi is a popular summer appetizer usually eaten with rice or enjoyed as a refreshing summer drink after meals. It is a 100% plant-based appetizer made from coconut milk and kokum. Kokum is the dried fleshy skin of Garcinia indica ('ratambe' in Marathi) that has a beautiful deep purple-pink colour from its anthocyanin pigments.
- Solkadhi is best served immediately after tempering, or as a cool drink after refrigerating.
- Coconut milk can get spoiled in the hot weather, so be sure to refrigerate the kokum curry for a couple of hours before serving.
- The curry tastes best when consumed on the day.
