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)
- 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.
- 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.
- Add the sugar, salt and pepper and mix well
- Lastly chop the mint leaves really fine and add them.
