Ingredients
  • 1/2kg Paneer Drakshai/Grapes
  • 125grams Sugar
  • 2.5litres Water
Instructions
  1. In a large pot, bring about a litre of water to boil. Add grapes to it.
  2. As the grapes come to a boil, the skin breaks and they begin to float on top.
  3. Remove from heat and drain the grapes. Reserve the water.
  4. In another pot, have about 1.5 litres of cold water. Drop the blanched grapes into it. Let it cool down a bit.
  5. When pressed between fingers, the pulp slides out and carefully remove the seeds. Preserve the skin and seeds along with the water.
  6. Store the grape pulp in the fridge while making the juice.
  7. Now take all the grape water in the large pot along with the grape skin and seeds. On medium flame, let it come to a boil.
  8. Add 1/2 cup or 125 gms of sugar and mix well.
  9. Keep the juice boiling for about 15-20 mins on medium flame until it is slightly reduced and turns a deep violet.
  10. Strain the grape skin/seeds and refrigerate the juice until ready to serve.
  11. Mix the grape pulp and juice before serving. Serve cold. For longer storage period, place in airtight container in the fridge.
Note –
  1. It best to use the seeded variant of grapes for this recipe as they are naturally sweet. If not available, seedless varieties can be used.
  2. Add sugar as per preference. 1/2 cup of sugar was sufficient for 2.5 ltrs of water which turned into almost 2 ltrs of juice.
  3. If the grapes are too sweet, a drizzle of lemon juice could be added.
