Special Tips:

* We even use the seeds of bhind/cocum for this recipe.
* If Fresh Bhind/cocum is not available, then use the dried cocum.
* Even ready to use salty cocum syrup is available in market which can be used instead of cocum fruit
* Even this kadi can be filtered and used as summer juice with some ice which is very refreshing and cool for the body.
