Mango Frooti - Fresh And Juicy - A Famous Fmcg Indian Beverage Made At Home! - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
In the 1990's in India the concept of Tetra packs came up with beverages and canned food exclusively and neatly packed in them. They became an instant hit with the consumer market as they were lightweight, easy to carry and kept food fresh as the tetra packs were sealed in vacuum. One of the famous drinks was called Frooti which was a Mango beverage and came with an attached small plastic straw. There was a small sealed hole on the top of the tetra pack where the straw could be inserted and the person could happily sip the delicious drink as they wanted. In due course of time there were many negative rumors associated with this great tasting drink and now it is hardly seen in the market. When I was a child I drank a lot of this beverage on school picnics and with friends and could not forget the taste after growing up. There were many substitutes which came in the market but none matched the original Mango Frooti flavour. I am therefore bringing the nostalgia and famous characteristic taste with the incredibly easy recipe for all of you to savor. This will be especially nostalgic for all the people born in India in the 80's and 90's.

  • Put the sugar in a saucepan and pour the remaining 1 cup water on it. Mix well and heat till the sugar dissolves in the water. We do not need to make a syrup here so just dissolve the water. Keep aside to cool to room temperature.
  • After both the syrup and steamed Mango dices come to room temperature, put the Mango dices in a blender along with the water. Pour 1/2 cup of the sugar solution and blend to make a fine puree.
  • Mix this puree into the remaining sugar solution and mix well with a whisk.
  • Add the 1 liter cold water whisking all the time and check for consistency. It should neither be very thick nor like water. Strain the drink through a soup strainer or sieve.
  • Whisk one time and refrigerate till chilled. Pour into a glass jug for showing off the beautiful yellow colour! Serve with Ice Cubes.

I am a passionate foodie who loves to cook, serve and love to see people relishing my creations. Since the time I was small I used to wonder about the 'how' of things in the kitchen.

Then when I finally ventured as an unprofessional kitchen helper for my late grand-mother (a par excellent cook in her own generation) I was fascinated by the amount of stuff you could do to a simple milk and rice to form a most yummy pudding.

Here I am sharing my recipes with a will to learn from some and educate others as well!
