Everyone knows how tasty a maaza is, wouldn’t it be great if you can prepare one in your home without any artificial flavors or preservatives and still it tastes exactly the same?
Heartfelt thanks to my friend Poornima for giving me such a bulk quantity of home grown mangoes. My kids are loving this drink.
Ripe mangoes – 5
Raw (thothapuri) mango – 1 ½
Sugar – almost 2 ½ cup (according to taste )
Salt – ½ tsp
Method : –
-Wash Ripe mangos and raw mangos , remove outer skin and chop it. Quantity should be 2:1 (ripe mango will be more and raw mango will be less).
-Now take these chopped Mango pieces in the cooker, add around 2 cups of sugar, little water (up to mango pieces)
-Cook this for two whistles, switch off the gas, when pressure releases, open the lid and cool the mixture.
-When it becomes a little cool, blend this mixture by using hand blender or mixer grinder.
-Now add required amount of water (check thickness while adding ) till you get required amount of thickness like store bought maaza .
- After achieving required thickness, add salt, check for sweetness, if u feel u need some more sugar, add and mix nicely.
- After all the adjustment ,take one vessel and sieve this mixture and discard the fiber part.
- Collect this smooth juice in a clean bottle and keep this for cooling in a fridge…serve and enjoy this juice after cooling.
- I got 3 liters of juice with the quantities I specified.
