Bel ka Sharbat - It has a very soothing and cool effect on stomach. It has lots of fibre so it is also good for digestion. #drink #summer #indian #bel | whatscookingmom.in

Though bel is not available all over India this drink is very popular in Rajasthan. There are street vendor selling bel juice on their moving carts. you can have it without adding anything but I like adding a little sugar to the sharbat so that even kids would finish it without any fuss.  Its a very healthy drink and can be prepared very easily at home.

    does bel makes u gain weight if a person is on diet.

    • Nidhi says:

      HI Richa. I Don’t think so. Bel is full of fibre so I don’t think it will make you gain weight. Please check with your dietician.
      you can reduce or skip adding sugar if you want. 🙂

    Hi Niddhi,
    just discovered your blog and love it. I have no children but do cook a lot, mostly vegetarien.. and do explore all fragrance and flavours for leisure but also professional inspiration for perfumers :). Have been looking all over Paris to find some dried baels that I discovered in Thailand, but could only find some wood apple marmelade in Indian stores.. Thanks for this recipe and I will be checking all your other posts on fruits and ingredients 🙂 Best!
