Summer is the season, when we need lot of water to keep our body hydrated. The humble bell fruit is one such fruit, which we had in our front yard while I was a kid. It is the most underrated fruit when I was growing and other than eating, fruits used to be wasted on the ground after it fell from the tree.
Almost all the household has one or the other watery fruit plant in our native. It has several names like wax apple, java apple, water apple, Syzygium, Jambi fruit or jambu nerale.
Last week when I tried this otherwise bland, watery fruit with Raw mango and mint in the form of juice, we liked the flavour and enjoyed it.
Recipe goes like this-
Bell fruits – 8 to 10
Raw mango – ¼ piece of one mango
Mint – 1to 2 strings
Sea Salt – ¼ teas poon
Sugar – as needed.
Water – 2 cups
Ice cubes – if needed
-Wash, make half, remove seed and clean the bell fruit.
-Take one juicer jar and put everything and churn until sugar dissolves.
-Strain the juice, pour this into a serving glass, put couple of ice cubes and serve.
