pudhina lemon juice
My husband told me to prepare mint lemon juice after having this in a juice corner. I googled the recipe and found it very simple. I tried immediately and we loved it. Its a refreshing , coolant for summer. Do try this,u’ll like it.

                                                                 INGREDIENTS
Name Quantity
Mint leaves 1/4 cup
Lime juice 1 tbsp ( adjust)
Water 1 cup
Salt As needed
Sugar A pinch
Pepper powder 1/4 tsp (optional)

 

METHOD


Remove the mint leaves from the stem and wash it well. Now grind it along with lime juice to make a smooth paste by adding required water.Now drain the juice and add more water. Add the required salt.Sprinkle pepper powder on top and serve chill!!

 

NOTE

  • If u wish to make a sweet juice add a tsp of sugar for the above mentioned recipe.
  • U can add more mint leaves if u want a strong flavor of mint in the juice.Also adjust the lime juice accordingly.
  • I’ve used pepper powder but its purely optional. It doesn’t blend with the juice . It just floats on top but it doesn’t spoil the taste.So its ur choice of adding it.
