nannari syrup recipe with step by step photos – easy do it yourself method of making nannari syrup at home.

nannari syrup recipe

nannari also known as indian sarsaparilla is a plant native to india and is used in ayurveda. its also called as ananthmoola or anantvel (source wiki).

to prepare nannari syrup, it roots are used. the roots are aromatic and thus in the syrup too the aroma is felt. though nannari syrup is easily available in south india and now online too, i wanted to prepare the syrup at home. so i bought nannari powder from amazon.in and made the syrup at home. preparing the syrup from roots is a slightly tedious process and i wanted easy work to do.

nannari powder to make nannari syrup recipe

i have here used the same method as with the sandalwood syrup recipe i had shared some years back. few more cooling drinks which you can make at home are khus sherbet, thandai, panakamkokum juice and lemon squash.

nannari is cooling for the body and is excellent during the summers. its also a blood purifier and one of the remedies for urinary infection. it also improves digestion.

nannari sherbet is an ancient cooling drink and is better than consuming cola drinks. it is also used to make the famous cooling drink from madurai known as jigarthanda.

i have made the nannari syrup with sugar, but you can also use jaggery in it. in the steps i have explained both preparing nannari syrup as well as nannari sharbat. in fact we are having nannari sherbet everyday to keep us cool in this sweltering heat.
