Yellu Neeru ( White Sesame Juice )

Posted on Updated on

Yellu in kannada is sesame in English. Sesame juice is very soothing in hot summer. It really tastes great when chilled and served. Here in Manipal it is available in some of the shops close to the college campuses. It is very easy to prepare and also very tasty. So yeah, give this a shot.

What you need to have:

1. White yellu(sesame )  – 1/4 cup

2. Jaggery – As per taste

3. Milk – 1 cup(I have used “good life” milk)

4. Cardamom – 4-5

Ingredients of Yellu juice

What you do with what you have:

1.Wash and drain water from sesame. Place a skillet on medium flame with washed sesame in it. Just warm it up in such a way that it just swells when compared to the original sesame seeds in image 1, but never sputters at all (See below).  Chop jaggery, peal and powder cardamon and keep aside.
