Hesaru Kaalina Paanaka / Green Gram Sherbet

This post is a part of the main post that was made for Karnataka with the theme - Indian Food Odyssey where we visited 30 Indian states and Union Territories as a part of the Mega Blogging Marathon April 2014...

I invited my fellow bloggers to my house[virtually of course] and cooked a dish for each meal of the day....

The breakfast starts with a traditional dosay from Udupi.Udupi cuisine takes its name from Udupi, a city on the Western coast of Karnataka.I served this with the Uppu Huli Dosay for breakfast...

The next item on our menu is a simple juice.Well, if were under the notion that only fruits and veggies could be juice, the people of Udupi will prove you wrong with this recipe. Yes , a juice made of green gram!

Hesaru Kaalina Paanaka / Green Gram Sherbet :

I used:
Source - Udupi Recipes

Hesaru Kaalu / Green gram-1/4 cup
Grated coconut-1/4 cup
Cardamom -1 pod
Jaggery to taste

Soak the green gram for at least 4 hours. Grind all the things together using a cup of water. Strain and press the residue to extract all the juice [or as much as possible] and sip!

Enjoy the tasty beverage...


After the first extract, the residue can be ground again adding a little water and then filtered.[Just like we do to extract coconut milk]

Bon Appetit...
