This is a cool refreshing drink to beat the summer heat.

It is so so hot these past few days that I’ve been going to the gym as i cant take the heat & decided to make this summer drink made out of mangoes.

We need raw mangoes that are green in color. I din’t find them in the local stores here and hence i bought these from Indian store; which turns out are very expensive. But it feels really good as its very cooling.

What you need:

Raw mangoes: 3

Jaggery: 5 oz

Black Salt: 1/4 tsp

Cumin powder: 1 tsp

Peppercorns: 4

Cardamom: 3

Method:

– Wash & pressure cook the mangoes with enough water for 4 whistles. If you don’t have a pressure cooker then boil the mangoes in a saucepan until its cooked & soft, approx 20 mins.

– Let the pressure from the cooker release on its own after which let it cool. Peal the mangoes & extract just the pulp. Throw away the seeds & the skin.

– Add the pulp in a processor & run it until smooth. Strain the pulp as sometimes it contains some fibers.

– Add the cumin powder & salt. I dint have black salt so i used regular salt. But, if you have black salt then use that. (This is the preserve) Store this in a clean, sterilized jar with no moisture in it and store it in the refrigerator.
