What is Kairi ka Pani?

A simple yet very refreshing beverage from the land of soaring temperatures, Rajasthan, is kairi ka pani. It protects from the scorching sun and heat waves. During peak summers, the temperature rises as high as 50°C and it becomes risky to step out. Kairi ka pani is a common preparation in the kitchens during those days. It is different from aam ka panna. It is lighter to drink and easier to make.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Kairi ka Pani

Raw Mangoes: Kairi, make sure to use kairi without fiber. Use tangy and raw kairi for the best results.

Sugar: Certainly a good quantity of sugar is used to balance the tanginess of kairi in the drink. This can be adjusted as per taste. I would not recommend using jaggery instead of sugar as jaggery might not have that cooling effect and will also affect the taste.

Water: Yes, water needs a mention here. For 1 small kairi 1 and ½ cup of water is used. Do not doubt this. We are making kairi ka pani, it has got to have a watery consistency.

Other ingredients: Unlike aam panna, very few ingredients are used to make kairi ka pani. Other than the main ingredients, roasted cumin seeds powder and black salt are used. I like to add a pinch of red chili powder; it gives a kick to the taste as well as look for the drink.

How to serve Kairi ka Pani?

It can be served as a welcome drink or as an accompaniment with the meal. I made it as a part of my Rajasthani thaali, and at the end of entire cooking and photoshoot, I was too exhausted. I remember slurping down the whole glass of chilled kairi ka pani and I left so refreshed that I would again go and make the entire thaali. Certainly, that was an exaggeration but the bottom line is that it is a very refreshing beverage.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
