Mulam pazham juice

Cantaloupe Or Musk melon in English , Mulam pazham or Kirni pazham in Tamil , Kharbooja in Hindi , kannada – It comes in various colors. But tastes similar..
This is my father’s most favourite summer drinks.When i was a kid , my dad used to buy this juice and compels to me to try once. But me a stubborn girl , never touched itHot smile .Now , being a food blogger , i try & taste varieties of food and juices. Earlier i used to have only black grapes and pomegranate..But now i started to make juice with all seasonal fruits..I wanted to try this musk melon juice for a long time.Recently when i went to my in-laws place,my MIL made this juice for us. For the first time i had that juice and i loved it. Then i felt bad tat i missed this healthy , tasty juice in my childhood days Sad smile. This is one of the best coolants and thirst quencher for summer..My MIL makes thick juice and stores it for 2-3 days by refrigerating it.She adds ice cold water to adjust the consistency at the time of drinking.Its very easy to make and tastes great.
