Mango Frooti (Homemade & Preservative free)

As mangoes are seasonal, do you wish to have this fruit throughout the year ? I would love to have this fruit as much as possible and so try to make use of the ripe fresh mangoes in the best possible ways. Mango frooti is one drink that I enjoyed as a kid, and that was bought once in a blue moon, though. But all store brought drinks do have some preservatives. 

Homemade mango frooti is one such healthy drink that you can try making at home and surprise your guests with this chilled drink. This frooti can be preserved for 10 days in the fridge, I have personally used within 10 days, but I think you can extend a few more days if you preserve it in small batches. I have used the pressure cooker to prepare this drink, which is quite simple and faster. Check this simple recipe and enjoy this fruit as much as possible.

Method
  • Wash, peel and cut the mangoes in cubes.
  • Add the mango pieces to a pressure cooker and add a cup of water. Place on flame and cook for 2- whistles. Switch off the flame and wait till the pressure is released. Then open the lid, and mash the mango pieces using a potato masher. 
  • Add the granulated sugar when hot and mix until the sugar is dissolved. Pour the contents in a clean dry bowl through a strainer. Add little water to the residue and extract the pulp as much as possible.
  • Add the remaining measured water little by little and give a quick mix until smooth. Serve in glasses or refrigerate in clean dry glass bottles.



NOTES
* You can add up to 1 cup of sugar, depending on the sweetness of mangoes.
* As it is preservative free, you can preserve the frooti in fridge for a maximum of 10 days.
* Use clean, dry glass bottles to prevent any contamination and reactions.
* The amount of water depends on the thickness of the pulp received, so add water little by little and stop once you receive the desired consistency.
