Phalsa or Grewia asiatica is a fruit from the berry family which is native to Asia and South Asia. It is available in India during summers.


This summer fruit has amazing benefits. Consuming this fruit in whole or it’s juice keeps the stomach cool in summers. It saves from heat stroke and also helps cure urine infection.


Besides, it helps treat giddiness, stomach problems, diabetes, cholesterol related issues, nervous system weakness and many more things. It is very rich in anti-oxidants, minerals and vitamins.


My mother-in-law makes it’s sharbat at home. It is really tasty and helps treat dehydration to a great extent. Children are fussy in eating whole fruit because of it’s seeds so this is a good way to give them this fruit.


Here’s the recipe from my mother-in-law’s kitchen:


Ingredients (for 3-4 glasses):

  • 1/2 kg falsa (washed well and soaked in 2 glass drinking water for 2-3 hours)
  • Sugar to taste
  • Black salt to taste
  • Bhuna jeera powder  1 teaspoon
  • Lemon juice to taste (optional)
  • Water and ice cubes



  • Take the bowl in which you have kept soaked falsa fruit and with clean hands or spoon try to mash it as much as possible. Soaking will make it soft. You can also grind it in a mixer by adding one more glass of water.
  • Strain the mixture. If done with hands, add 1 more glass water. Now add sugar, salt, bhuna jeera and lemon juice. You may also add little ginger juice.
  • Add ice cubes and serve chilled.


Falsa is little tangy and sour in taste so add sugar accordingly. Also adding lemon may increase sourness.
