Nannari Sarbath| Nannari Sherbet ~ A south Indian summer favorite & wishes for a Happy Tamil New Year


Nannari is a common and most famous summer chiller drink from South India and since today is Tamil New Year's I thought of sharing a favorite recipe that is served chill with ice cubes, lime and the unique taste of the Nannari Syrup. Now tell me what other way to celebrate the new year and with a very hot weather? Nannari is my all time favorite and being in a place like TN we have only summer all through the year where temperature soar high during March - June and the peek being May.

Nannari roots are termed to have medicinal properties and are typically sold in Ayurvedic stores in India. The roots of Nannari (also known as sarsaparilla) are a key ingredient in a popular summer drink in south India (Madurai). The drink concentrate, commonly referred to as Nannari Sherbet, is made by slightly crushing the roots of sarsaparilla and steeping them in hot water to infuse the flavors. Jaggery syrup or a sugar syrup (or both) are added to this to make a concentrate. 

Happy Tamil New Year's
to all my dear reader's and friends
