  • And you can make it a healthy low calorie drink.

Notes

  1. You can adjust the thickness of the drink to your preference. I like it thick and so added generous amounts [5 to 6 tablespoons or more] of concentrated mixture/ pulp per glass. If you like it thin take about 2 to 3 tablespoons of concentrated mixture/ pulp per glass.
  2. The recipe makes use of smoked/ charred mangoes. This lends a nice subtle smoky flavor to the drink. But if you don’t like the smoky flavor, simply boil/ steam peeled deseeded mangoes instead.
  3. The quantity of sugar and salt depends upon the sourness of the mangoes so adjust accordingly.
  4. Make sure the mangoes you use are very sour. The colour of the drink depends on the colour of the mangoes and addition of the ingredients like pudina and jeera.
  5. If you like your drink with a few chunks of mango pulp in it; do not grind the mango mixture in a blender. Instead, simply mash all the ingredients with your hands into a coarse pulp.
