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 it. 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 very bad that I missed this healthy , tasty juice in my childhood days. 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.

  15. This appears to be a lovely juice. But you speak of low calories and how this is good for someone who wants to lose weight - but nowhere do you mention how many calories are in a musk melon. That would be helpful. Thank you.

  18. USE JAGGERY /PALM SUGAR(safe for diabebetes also)...Its IRON CONTENT AND PL AVOID WHITE SUGAR WHEREEVER NEEDED..BEING SUMMER OUR INTAKE will be Mostly WATER CONTENT FOOD ITEMS. EVERYTIME 2-3 TSP OF SUGAR WILL BE VERY HARMFUL TO OUR HEALTH
