Garcinia indica, a plant in the mangosteen family (Clusiaceae), commonly known as kokum, is a fruit-bearing tree that has culinary, pharmaceutical, and industrial uses.
The fresh fruit can be preserved with sugar to make bright-red squash that is diluted with water and bottled for sale as a beverage.
The outer cover of fruit is dried in the sun to get aamsul or kokam. It is also known as bhirand in Konkani, muragalu in Kannada, punarpuli in Tulu and kaatampi in Malayalam. It is used as a staple souring agent typically in Goan cuisine and some parts of Maharashtra and Karnataka. Kokum yields a peculiar flavour and blackish red colour. As a souring agent, it is used as an alternative to tamarind in curries and other dishes from the Goa and Konkan region. It is also used in cuisine from Gujarat, where it is frequently used to add flavor and tartness to dal (lentil soup) for flavor balance, and parts of South India. It is extensively used in Assamese cuisine in many dishes like “masor tenga” or sour fish curry and “tenga dali” or sour dal. It is also used as a cure for upset stomach and colds. A few dry pieces are soaked in water for some time and then the pieces are mashed in the water itself and can be taken in whole.
