* Citric acid, Nimbu Sat or Tatri is one and the same thing available in the market in different looks. Tatri and Nimbu Sat are the Hindi words for Citric Acid. Citric Acid is available in the market in a powdered form whereas Tatri, also named as Nimbu Sat, is available in crystals.

* Once the rooh afza syrup recipe is prepared and cooled down and you feel that the syrup is slightly thick, add 1 or 2 tbsps of hot water in the Rooh afza and mix well.

The boiling mixture may take about 25 to 30 minutes in becoming 1 string Sugar syrup.

* To check the 1 string consistency, take 2 drops of syrup between your index finger and thumb. Open the index finger and thumb opposite to each other and if you will see a string of syrup making up a string, your 1 string  consistency sugar syrup is ready.
If string is not making out, boil the mixture for a couple of minutes more.


You can store the homemade Rooh afza Syrup upto 6 months. Do not refrigerate, otherwise sugar may freeze & settle down in the bottle.


Everyone has his own taste buds and accordingly you can adjust the sweetness as per your liking. But for a normal drink mix….

1 Cup of Chilled water + 2 tbsp of Rooh afza Syrup.
