Instant Mango Fruity Recipe: How To Make Mango Juice


No, mango frooty is not a favorite this side. I know it's a kid's favorite, but I have never fallen for fruity, though I love mangoes. After all, who does not love the king of fruits? Yes, I know a couple of people who do not! Do not be surprised by this, because the earth is a bag full of mixed breeds - so rejoice and cherish what you love, that's it, without bothering about whether the other person likes it or not! Anyway, I am not going to hijack the mango frooty post with my jargon!

The mango fruity recipe takes inspiration from Rama Krishnan's OPOS technique. RK holds the trademark of OPOS - one pot one shot - the culinary innovation that seems to have brought about a revolution in south India and is gradually finding its place in the north too. Thankfully, I came to know of OPOS from the illustrious Chithra Vishwanathan.

Okay, so we were discussing mango frooty - I have never been fond of fruity, not even in my childhood, while both of my siblings were madly in love with this mango squash. I find mango flavor too overpowering in fruity - one reason it never found favorites with me! Yes, it's true.

So what inspired me to come up with my own version of homemade mango fruity? Well, the mango season has just arrived and we still are to get the best of this fruit in north India. But since it is a favorite, I ended up bringing one kilogram to kick-start my mango season. Unfortunately, the mangoes were tasteless. So they had to be put to some use. First, I decided to make chutney, then wondered if I should make mango coconut curry. But then I realized I have never tried mango frooty at home. Since my nephew and niece are crazy frooty lovers, I wanted to try out fruity at home, so I can direct their mommies to make the mango juice for their kids. Not to mention, hubby dear likes fruity, but we have never bought it at home. So what better time to experiment with the king of fruits than now?

This was how my homemade mango fruity instant was born!
Of course, OPOS stars have been posting fruity posts, which was another temptation to try out this juicy mango squash.

Mango Benefits

Wondering whether you should go crazy for mangoes this season?
The sweet and tangy fruit is what the world is so passionate about.

Besides being one of the tastiest, sweetest fruits, mango is packed with minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants. Mango is rich in potassium, so if you have kidney problems, you would be better warned not to indulge in this fruity deliciousness or else, you should sweat it out.
Works both ways.

A native of India, Burma, and southern Asia, a mango is bursting with flavors and packs a health punch, thanks to its low cholesterol, low saturated fat, and low sodium content.


Research reveals that mangoes are a good source of vitamin A and C. Their high mineral content and antioxidant boost make mangoes one of the healthiest fruits to savor during the summer heat. Not only this, they are rich in copper and magnesium and are one of the best sources of antioxidants, such as beta-carotene, quercetin, and astragalin, which can have a potent effect on cancer-causing free radicals. Some studies reveal that if you relish the king of fruits, you can avoid premature aging, degenerative disease, and heart disease.

But there's a word of caution here - since mangoes are overly sweet and packed with minerals and sugar, you need to really work out hard after a mango meal.

So let's come back to the instant mango fruity recipe.
mango fruity instant opos

Ingredients

4 big mangoes (ripened) - should be delicious, juicy, and succulent - else you might end up with a flavorless fruity
2 small raw mangoes (unripe)
1/4 tsp- black salt or mineral salt
1/4 cup- jaggery powder or more
1/4 cup- water (for pulp)+ 1 cup for later use
3 tbsp- honey (I had to add later as my mangoes weren't sweet enough for the squash - if your mangoes are similar to mine, you can add 1/2 cup jaggery instead)

How to make instant mango fruity

Take a 2/3-liter pressure cooker.
Add 1/4 cup water. Throw in jaggery powder.
Drop in chopped raw mangoes. Top them with ripened mangoes.
Add salt.
Close the cooker and pressure cook for 4 whistles.
Open and run the pulp in a grinder upon cooling.
Add 1 cup water and store in a jar in the refrigerator.
Since my mangoes weren't too sweet, I added honey at this stage before refrigeration.

To make instant mango drink, add 2-3 tbsp of fruity in a glass of water to refresh yourself. You may add more of fruity juice as per your taste preference.
I have it for the first time, so unsure about its shelf life. But it should be good to go for at least a week in the refrigerator. Better still to make it fresh every few days. There's nothing like fresh produce, isn't it? So why buy market junk when you can recreate the yumminess at home?

Guess who has gone crazy for this instant homemade mango fruity? Yes,yourd truly! I wanna have it every now and then. Hey, but I am extremely cautious with what goes in, so I know how to control my temptations.
