Nungu sarbath recipe, a perfect summer thirst quencher recipe made using nungu and nanari sarbath. The addition of the sabja seeds enhances the taste. Growing up in Madurai, we have tasted this nungu sarbath many times. More than trying it outside, we used to make it at home. My mama used to get nanarai sarbath bottle from shop during summer. We used to make the plain sarbath at home and also the nungu sarbath too. The first taste of the nungu sarbath was in Kanyakumari, when i was in 7th standard. Vividly remember visiting the beach in Kanyakumari on a hot summer day and enjoying the nungu sarbath on the way back.

My sister was insisting me to post this Nungu sarbath recipe for a long time. Somehow i don’t get nungu in nearby Indian shops. Last weekend i went to Little India and happened to see this in a shop. More than me my sister is so happy that i am posting this nungu sarbath recipe in Jeyashris kitchen.

Nanari syrup is the one we get in most of the South Indian grocery shops, the syrup made using the sarasapilla root. This root is a natural coolant. Sabja seeds, nungu, nanari syrup combo is a perfect summer coolant. Try this out and enjoy the summer drink.
