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.

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

Instant Aam Papad (Sada) With Jaggery: Sweet & Tangy Mango Slices

Aam papad has been a hot favorite since childhood. I do not remember how many times I have enjoyed these sweet & tangy mango sheets, though no one from my mom's side ever tried making them at home. After marriage, my mother in law, who is an awesome cook, made these savory & sweet mango pulp slices for me. I must tell that she makes the best mango pickle in the world - which is both sweet & sour. She made two buckets full for me after she found that I love aam achaar.

Who does not like sweet and tangy mango leather? Our generation has grown up relishing aam papad- wonder what all the present generation is missing out on! So this instant aam sada or papad recipe was born after my dear friend Poonam Bachhav had shared her aam papad post. Her post was the ultimate trigger for me to come up with my own instant Odia version. Poonam is the real Annapurna. I love the way she picks healthy ingredients to cook up deliciousness in the kitchen. Poonam blogs at Poonam Bachaav dot…
