Astragalus gummifer (tragacanth, gum tragacanth milkvetch), is a small woody evergreen shrub, with a typical height and spread of 30 cm at maturity, indigenous to western Asia, specifically Iraq and Kurdistan. This nitrogen fixing plant bears hermaphroditic flowers, which are bee-pollinated. It has many medical, culinary, and material uses . Astragalus gummifer produces special exudate gums that act as a natural defense mechanism for the shrub. Research has shown the function of these gums to service plants of semiarid environments, released when the bark of the shrub gets damaged in order to cover the wound to prevent infection and dehydration. The gum originally an aqueous solution dries into hardened lumps when it comes into contact with air and sunlight.

It is mostly found in Mid East, Iraq, and Iran and even in western Asia. Iran produces an enormous quantity of Gond Katira. It is a tree gum just like any of myrrh but is less common in products than other gums, such as guar gum or gum arabic. The gum emanates naturally from the roots as well as from incisions made in the stem (below ground level down to 5 cm).This is collected and then dried to forms crystals of flakes. They may be formed into blocks as well.

You may get misapprehend that you have never eaten gum Tragacanth before, but the veracity is that you have taken it as an additive with E number as ‘E 413’in food industry. 

Gond  Katira for both Summer and Winter:

Gond Katira has both cooling as well as heating effects. In summer, it turns out fluffy as well as soft after soaking in water.

So, before making any recipe in summer, soaking in water is mandatory as consuming it in mild form helps to produce the cooling effect in our body.

In winter, first, fry and grind it effectively. Then, it can be added to many of the desserts and other items. In this form, it generates heat in the body which is needed.

Method Of making Summer drinks:

Take two pieces of Gond katira and soak it overnight in a glass of water. See it in the morning. You will observe that it becomes fluffy, and there is an increase in the volume of Gond katira. Clean water wash(2-3 times) is required to remove the impurities. Now your Gond katira is ready to use in summers.


How to make Gond Katira drink:


Fluffed Gond katira – ½ tbsp/ Sugar – 1 tbsp/ Lemon juice – 1 tbsp / Water – 1 glass / Crushed ice as needed


Blend the above-written constituents and drink that daily.

How To Make Gond Katira Kheer:-


Fluffed Gond katira -1 tbsp / Milk – 500 ml (generally chilled) / Sugar (as per taste) / Almonds, Pista chopped – 2 tbsp / Green cardamom powder(a pinch) / Crushed ice as needed.


 Boil the milk till it is reduced to almost 2/3 or as per your choice. Now take out sugar and cardamom powder from your kitchen’s wardrobe and add it to the boiled milk. Allow it to cool for some time. Add the fluffed Gond katira and almonds, Pista which are chopped earlier. Finally, insert the crushed ice and kheer is ready.
