gond katira sharbat | sharbat with goond katira with step wise pictorial method.
This is not just a Sharbat. It is something much more than a welcome Drink. I won’t be wrong if i call it a drink with so many health benefits.
A daily dose of one glass or intake of Gond Katira through any of the Gond Katira recipes (mentioned in the end) prevent heat stroke & there will be no problem of nose bleeding which is very common among children especially during summers. I usually serve it to my son after he comes back from the school because he’s having a severe Nose bleeding problem.
have a look at a detailed post on GOND KATIRA ; a cooling herb in summers to know more about it.
Fluffed Gond katira* – 2 tbsp
Water (chilled) – 1 glass
Sugar – 1.5 tbsp
Lemon – Juice of 1 big lemon or 1 tbsp lemon juice
Cumin seeds (roasted & powdered) 1/4 tsp
Mango powder – 1/8 tsp
Black pepper – 2 pinches
Black salt – 1/2 tsp

what exactly is gond katira and what are its uses and other details, although has been shared already via a link given on the top of this post , but to make the things convenient for my readers, i am reproducing the method of making fluffy Gond Katira:
Have two pieces or can say crystals of Gond katira and soak it overnight in water. In the morning it will turn out to be fluffy and there is an increase in the volume of Gond katira. Just wash it & use. But for exact measurements & procedure, do see the mentioned post.
**In chilled water, sugar takes extra time in dissolving. Instead, take 3-4 tbsp of water at room temperature & dissolve sugar in it. Then add it to the main process. Adjust with crushed ice / Ice Cubes, if needed.
