Summers are upon us and India being a tropical country has had a unique love-hate relationship with the heat. Kerala, for instance, happens to witness high temperature throughout these months. How do Malayalis deal with this sweltering heat? There are multiple ways; one of them is their food that takes a delish summer makeover in this span. From curries and pickles to drinks, seasonal fruits and veggies find a way into most of their delicacies. Kerala Kulluki Sarbath is a lime drink that is served chilled. A unique quality about this lemonade is that it is slightly spicy in flavour. Yes, you heard us! You would not expect something like this from a lemon drink, would you? Lemonades are mostly sweet, but this sarbath is one delectable surprise you wouldn't want to miss!
