No No there is no added color to this Raw mango juice!!
This is Typical Preparation mom makes during summer and makes sure all of us have this drink
She says this will cut down body heat and help against sun strokes. I doubted her all these years, My dad says the same, A common mythology in fact within our circle.
Mom makes sure whole of family members consume this and also send this to my grandparents home.
We just knew its summer and finish we have to consume this. I really hated to have this drink huh!!!
The problem would be we r insisted to take this early morning empty stomach yes :( empty stomach and imagine how difficult it is to gulp it down lolzzz
while typing I remembered few years back mom woke me up and gave me this drink, I was holding in my hand and I was so much in sleep I spill the whole drink in the bed and I woke up ahhhh there came her angry looks hehe
Coming up to the method:
Any number of mangoes you want to use. the raw mangoes which r used in making pickles.
boil these mangoes in water. till the color changes and pulp feels little soft
remove the mangoes and allow to cool. Preserve the water in which its boiled.
Next Burn the mangoes on stove top kind of roasting in all the sides which we do for brinjals sometimes.
next add these burnt/roasted mangoes into the water preserved and let it rest over night
next day morning mash up the mangoes by hand and mix sugar accordingly sugar will depend on the sourness of mangoes. drink it as it is in room temp without chilling it
Such a difficult task u see :)) but to be honest what mom said did work :)
When i was working I had to travel during 11am in the morning during April n may public exam shift
I saw Teachers Traveling and coming badly sweating and panic they just complaint of chennai's high humid climate, and i was cool enough thinking y nothing happens to me???
I remembered this magical drink of mom which she made me drink and it acted as coolant to my body.
I certainly love this drink now :) and happily shared the school incident with mom :) Now Im in love with this drink :)
Its Sweet & Sour Drink though we had been consuming since childhood its not kids friendly :) not atleast upto 7yrs I can guess
Since Its hand blended you might have some pieces of pulpy mango floating, You can either use ur mixer.
Burnt peel of mangoes will give a different nice flavor to the drink, but if u feel skeptical you can peel the burnt skin and then let it rest in water over night :)
Can be stored in fridge upto a week :)
Point to be noted:
Its more effective when consumed in empty stomach early in the morning, otherwise can be used as refreshment drink as well.
This time I used sugar free to this drink instead of sugar, n it was totally fine to taste
May B I'll click some more pics when its made next time and republish the post :)
