Green Gram Juice

Posted on Updated on

Yes ! You read that right. During the summers we prepare a variety of healthy home made juice rather than buy soda outside. It is not only natural but also harmless since we use no preservatives and instead refrigerate for a day or two at the most and finish it off ! This juice is in this category – tasting is believing.

What you need to have:

1. Green gram – 1 cup

2. Chopped jaggery – 1 cup ( approx )

3. Cardamom powder – 1 teaspoon

4. White pepper powder – A little

      Hi Shruti,
