Splash of Sunshine


Some shades, a few hues always manage to bring a smile to our face. Yellow, for me, is one such color – the deeper, the better. And, that is why I probably love this concoction more than the others.



6 pcs ripe keno’s (mandarin oranges)

2-4 stalks of mint (fresh leaves)

¼ th tsp pepper powder

1/4th tsp black rock salt (powdered)

2 tsp sugar (or as per taste depending on sweetness of the fruit)



  1. Oranges or sweet limes can be substituted for this fresh juice recipe but I find the taste of keni’s to be more robust. They have the right ratio of sweet to tart.
  2. Squeeze the juice out of the keno’s and strain it. Alternatively, you can also use a mixer to churn the pulp but be sure to remove the pips. The pips are what impart a bitter flavour to the juice. I use a mixer as juice at my place is consumed fresh and instantly. However, if you intend to store this in the fridge for a few hours then it will assuredly go bitter of the pips are churned in the mixer along with the pulp.
  3. Add the sugar, salt and pepper and mix well
  4. Lastly chop the mint leaves really fine and add them.

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (www.rianplacements.com), by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
