Summertime is the prime time for having fruits. The only kind of food that one genuinely enjoys and feels fulfilled after eating during this season is fruits. Fruits can be consumed in different forms. Each person has their own favorite way. Some prefer to have it as a drink, some like it in form of a salad and some like to eat it as is. My kids love to prepare instant summer drink on their own. That's the reason i always keep homemade instant summer drinks ready in my kitchen pantry.

The options for fruits are also vast. I am particularly fond of berries. There is a large variety of berries that are enjoyed by people in the hot weather season. Local mulberries, ber, phalse (wild blueberries), Indian raspberries, and Karondas (Bengal Currants). 

I was roaming around in the market, when I came across these karondas (carrisa carandas) also known as Bengal currants. I've seen and even eaten these berries several times, that too very fondly. But, those were the unripe karondas, of which my mom used to make pickle with green chilies. Most of the people in my family enjoyed the pickle of this fruit thoroughly. Yet, I never had discovered the ripe version of it. When I was told that the fruits that I have used in this recipe are ripe karondas, I knew that I had to purchase them. I brought them home and instantly started to ponder over what unique recipe I can come up with using the fruit. 

Well, here I am. This recipe for Indian Karonda squash/syrup to make an instant drink is cooked up at home with the commonest ingredient that each house surely stores.
