Almond Sharbat - Let's Chill!!

Summer is almost here and back home it's already frying up people. So, let's beat the heat with some sharbat. This is my favourite sharbat esp. when served chilled. I used to love going to Nathu's in Delhi to drink this one during the hot summer months. It not only chills you but also fills you up because it is so rich with almonds.

Traditionally, this drink is made in the month of Ramadan to break the fast. I know it too hot and so let's go straight to one of the easiest recipes for summer.

Almond Sharbat

Dedication: This recipe is dedicated to all my Muslim friends, Saba, Sadik and Reema

Serving: 4


  1. 50 gm ground almonds
  2. 600ml/2 cups milk
  3. 2 tsb granulated sugar or acc. to your own taste


  1. Put the ground almonds into a jug or pitcher
  2. Pour the milk and add the sugar
  3. Stir to mix
  4. Keep it in fridge for a while
  5. Serve cold (Tip: Chill the glasses in fridge before putting the sharbat. This is a good way to serve on a hot summer day)
  6. Enjoy!!

Hint for next recipe: "I" used to play chicken-chicken in a bucket.

Gossip of the week: Do you think Fanaa controversy will help the movie in making more moolah?

Oh! It's about Sharbat. Your hint was little confusing "sugar coat". It's not coating but mixing :p.

Very simple and perfect recipe for the summer. I'm ganna make and enjoy it :D.

"I" mean Ma/Mo in Nepali. Can it be Chicken open MoMo ?

But it's already bigger hit as Veer Zaara collected 22 caror in a week and Fanaa collected 32 caror in a week that's too without releasing it in Gujrat.

I saw the film. There are lots of loopholes but I enjoyed it as I take it film :).

yum.. u forgot to mention the calories !!! for a diet freak like me, thats really imp in a recipe :-) and yes, i feel the fanaa controversy will create more publicity for it than anything else..

Itane din baad ayee naya kuch bhee paka nahin.... :(

Hey, I forgot to ask one thing have you started to eat non-veg... Then what is this chicken-chicken bucket hints :-O

At 10:44 PM, Blogger Ricky said...

kandykane - I think this recipe will have around 150 calories. I don't look food in terms of calories so maybe have skipped it coz of that...LOL.

Welcome to my blog though!! Thanks for leaving your comments.

Silky Moon - Banega jee zaroor banega. This blog is non-veg if not me at anytime... ;-)
