"LOW" & Find these fruits....

Have started trying different blend of juices nowadays;)

My new introduction:

"LOW" - Lemony Orangy Watermelon Juice ;)


Try out this simple juice.....


Ingredients:
Watermelon - 4 cups(Peel, deseed and cut the flesh into small cubes)
Orange - 2 (Extract the juice)
Lemon - 1/2 of a medium sized ripe lemon (Extract the juice)
Sugar - 1 tablespoon
Water if required.

Method:
Add watermelon cubes, sugar to a blender and blend them nicely.

Then add orange juice, lemon juice and blend it until all gets mixed well.

Add little water if it is too thick.

Chill it and enjoy the juice.


Preparation time : 10-15 minutes
Makes 2 glasses.


Let me know the name of the below fruits, if you know. My brother-in-law got these from Kodaikanal, a hillstation in Tamilnadu, South India.



Not sure of their name, but the first brown one was meant for milk shake, and it was tasting like Chikku (Sapota). Other one was more like custard apple except for its shape.

If you know the names, please let me know:)

Jayashree said...

The first one looks a lot like mangosteen to me. Does the inside have some nongu like sections surrounded by a pinkish rim?

Illatharasi said...

Hi Jayashree... inside it had greenish yellow pulp with a big seed, just like an avacado.

Ila, they are not plastis, real fruit. Curious to know their names, can't find them in the net:(

Thanks friends, lets wait and see if someone identifies them:)

Hi there Illatharasi! The second (long green) one looks like either the fruit of a Monstera plant, or a thing that sometimes pops up in Pacific Island and South East Asian cooking, called "Nho fruit"!

If the first one was really really small (about 2.5cm in diameter) it would look just like the fruit of a Moreton Bay Fig Tree from the east coast of Australia.

Are my guesses at all right?
