Ingredients to make Nannari Syrup (from scratch)

  • 1/2 kilo - Nannari roots
  • 2 kg - sugar
  • 3+3 litres - water

How to make Nannari Syrup (from scratch)

  1. Clean the nannari roots. Remove dirt and weeds properly.
  2. Wash them under running water until you get rid of the silt.
  3. In a big vessel soak nannari roots in 3 litres of water over night.
  4. In the morning put the vessel on the stove and boil the roots for 1 hour on high flame.
  5. Carefully sieve the liquid using a colander.
  6. Now add 3 litres of water to the roots again and boil for one more hour.
  7. Again strain the liquid and discard the roots.
  8. Now add sugar to the whole liquid, stir and boil until it is reduced to half.
  9. It will take around 2 hours.
  10. Turn off the flame and allow it to cool to room temperature.
  11. Filter the syrup through a fine cotton cloth and store in sterilized bottles.

My Tip:

Use sterilized spoon and bottles to stir and store the syrup, if storing it for long period. Always bottle cooled nannari syrup to prevent from spoiling. Double filter it properly as it contains silt settled down upon cooling. Water is the biggest enemy of nannari syrup while cooling too do not close the vessel with lid instead use cloth to cover. As the vapour condenses on touching the lid and water droplets fall in the syrup in turn spoiling the syrup.
