Nannari Paal Sarbath | Milk Sarbath | Sarbath recipe

Nannari Paal Sarbath is a milk based sarbath flavored with nannari syrup. Nannari syrup is prepared from Nannari roots(Indian Sarsaparilla) and the natural coolant properties in it helps to cool the body during summer season.

In India during summer vacation, there are a lot of small sarbath stands or sugar cane juice stands pop up around almost every corner of the street and I love the nannari sarbath from those stalls. It's so refreshing and really a thirst quencher on those hot days.
