Homemade Nannari Syrup/How to make Homemade Nannari Syrup

Again H is one such difficult alphabet to choose a Tamil recipe, so used a clause and sharing a simple post.
Nannari aka India Sarasaparilla is a natural body coolant.The roots of the Sarasaparilla are often used to make the syrup and it has lot of medicinal values,used in Ayurvedic medicine.

Nannari sarbath is a popular drink in most of the road side shops especially in summer.Nannari sarbath is a natural thirst quencher made using nannari syrup and lemon juice along with crushed ice.
Will share the recipe of nannari sarbhat with the syrup soon.

As we don't get the nannari syrup here I missed this sarbhat a lot.After seeing so many homemade nannari syrup in the blogosphere I tried to make it at home.So during my last India trip I got a packet of nannari root from the Ayurvedic shop.

I made this syrup in a small quantity for my first trial and came out so good and flavorful.These days enjoying the nannari sarbhat a lot on sunny days.Since there is no preservatives used it can be stored in the refrigerator for 1-1.5 months.Lets move on to the recipe......................

   Basic Information

   Preparation time ~ 7 -8 hours
   Cooking time ~ 20 -25 minutes
   Makes ~ around 1 cup of syrup

    • The amount of sugar given was just perfect,I added some sugar while making the sarbhat.
    • The syrup needs to be like honey consistency,addition lemon prevents crystallization.
    • If you want the syrup to be colorful add a pinch of orange food color.
