Ingredients:

Mango pulp - 1 ltr
Water - 1 ltr
Sugar - 1.5 kgs
Pottasium Meta bisulphite (KMS)– ½ tsp
Citric acid - 2 tsp

mango squash7

Method:

Peel and chop mangoes roughly. Make a puree using a blender and keep it aside.

Take the sugar, citric acid and water in a pan and heat it until the sugar dissolves and it bubbles up. It should be a thin syrup.

Allow this sugar syrup to come to room temperature and then mix up the above made mango puree.

Take a tsp of warm water and dissolve the Pottasium Meta bisulphite (KMS - preservative) in it. Add it to the squash and mix it up.

Now pour the squash into sterilized bottles and store in refrigerator :)

Mango squash is ready.

To serve, fill 1/3 of serving glass with the mango squash and remaining by water. Mix up well and serve chill topped with ice cubes :)

Lovely presentation as always! How I wished to grab a glass now. :D

I usually try a rasna or maaza when I feel like having something like a squash or juice. I think your version would be more economical and disadvantage being I will finish the entire prep in a day :)

North Indian's prepare another version of the squash where the mango pulp with sugar is brought to a juicy form and then dried in small containers that are later cut into pieces and preserved for months. I hope you might have seen it.

The presentation was good as always and I will try this with the mangoes we get from the mango tree in our garden. Hope you might have seen the mango theft ;)

Hey Nithya,

I am a great fan of your photographic skills. How I wish I could learn from you... Can you begin one series on photography and presentation???

Mango squash looks very refreshing!!
