Badam pisin sharbat is a refreshing, healthy and delicious drink that is perfect for summer. Badam pisin is a edible gum that is extracted from badam tree. It is like a small stone, it doubles in quantity and becomes like a gel when soaked. Badam pisin is a natural coolant to body and also treats skin issues in summers. It is available in departmental stores and in small ayurvedic shops.
