About Fuljar Soda

Fuljar Soda is a drink from Kerala that is getting popular day by day due to its unique method of preparation. It erupts like a volcano when the shot glass filled with mint leaves and green chili mixture is dropped into the glass filled with club soda.

Here, Fuljar means full jar as it overflows the big glass used for drinking this soda. Spicy, sweet, and tangy, it is so refreshing that just one sip will give you instant relief from the scorching heat outside. It is also popularly prepared during the month of Ramzan.

While preparing it, ensure that you make it in an open place, as it fizzes a lot, and some of it even drips down. So, if you don’t want to spoil your expensive furniture or linen, try this fuljar soda in an open space.

This recipe is vegan and gluten-free. You can easily scale it as per your needs.

I love making refreshing soda-based drinks at home, and these are some of my other favorites that you must try too.

To prepare Fuljar Soda, you will need a few everyday ingredients – green chilies, ginger, mint leaves, freshly squeezed lime juice, sugar, salt, sabja seeds(Tukamaria seeds or basil seeds), and chilled club soda.

Choose the less spicy variety of green chilies. You need them for the taste and not for too much spice.

Adjust the amount of sugar and green chilies, as per your taste and preference.

Use freshly squeezed lime juice for the best taste.

Sabja seeds have cooling properties, so including them in your summer beverages is great.
