Homemade Khus Khus Sharbat

Enjoy the Homemade Khus Khus Sharbat as a refreshing summer drink. Its unique flavor and cooling properties make it a perfect choice to beat the heat and quench your thirst! Here's a recipe for Homemade Khus Khus Sharbat, a refreshing and aromatic drink:


  • 2 tablespoons khus khus (poppy seeds)
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup sugar (adjust according to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon rose water
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Crushed ice (for serving)
  • Fresh mint leaves (for garnish)


  1. In a bowl, soak the khus khus in 2 cups of water for about 1 hour. This will soften the seeds.
  2. After soaking, transfer the khus khus along with the water to a blender or food processor. Blend until you get a smooth paste.
  3. Place a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth over a large bowl. Pour the blended khus khus mixture into the sieve to strain out the solids. Press the mixture with a spoon or spatula to extract as much liquid as possible.
  4. Discard the solids and keep the strained khus khus milk in the bowl.
  5. In a separate saucepan, add the sugar and 2 cups of water. Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves completely. Remove from heat and let it cool.
  6. Once the sugar syrup has cooled, add it to the khus khus milk in the bowl. Mix well.
  7. Stir in the rose water and lemon juice. Taste and adjust the sweetness and tanginess according to your preference by adding more sugar or lemon juice if needed.
  8. Transfer the Khus Khus Sharbat to a glass jar or bottle and refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours to chill.
  9. To serve, fill a glass with crushed ice and pour the chilled Khus Khus Sharbat over it.
  10. Garnish with fresh mint leaves.
  11. Stir the drink gently before sipping to mix the flavors.
