WOODAPPLE CHILL(DIMBUL KIRI)


As the summer is taking full control ,in Tamil nadu ,i think it’s best to keep hydrated with

cool and healthy drinks,avoiding fizz or aerated ones.Today i’m going to share with you

woodapple nectar or dimbul kiri called in Srilanka,In Srilanka this fruit is widely

available and also consumed raw like a  spicy sambol,and the ripe ones are either eaten

in the shell with sugar or made into a drink.This fruit with a hard wooden shell has loads

of health benefits.It is good for diabetic patients,nursing mothers,fights bacterial and

viral infections ,a  good blood purifier,good for respiratory problems as it eases out the

phlegm in the system.So now i’m getting into the benefits of coconut milk..why?As it is

part of the drink.

Coconut milk rich in fibre,and highly nutritious with  minerals like iron,calcium

,magnesium,..and Vitamin group of C,E,B1,B3,B5,B6.Unlike cow’s milk,it is lactose

free.Consuption of coconut milk (medium chain saturated fatty acid) may protect the

body from infections,and viruses.

So let me close the healthy part and get into the recipe.Simple recipes got big write up….

INGREDIENTS

2 ripe woodapple pulp

1 cup coconut milk

sugar to taste.

a pinch of salt.

METHOD

Blend the pulp,coconut milk and the rest of the ingredients.Chill in the refridgerator and

serve.Those who like it thin may add more coconut milk or water.

Serve with vanilla ice cream for the extra richness.Even chocolate ice cream can be

served with,but i like it with vanilla ice cream,

Without ice cream itself it tastes excellent,so its your choice .
