Now moving to the recipe. This juice packs the goodness of pomegranates and lime with a hint of ginger. Always taste your pomegranate before using them for juicing. If the pomegranate is very sour, you will need to add a lot of sugar for a nice taste. In order to avoid sugar, I used a little amount of jaggery. My pomegranates weren’t very sour, so I could get away with just a teeny amount of it. You can also replace jaggery with honey for sweetness.
2 1/2 cups pomegranate seeds
1 tbsp lime juice
1/2 inch ginger
Jaggery or honey ( as per taste)
Chaat masala powder ( optional)
Add pomegranate seeds, lime juice and ginger in a juicer or blender. Blend for 10 seconds. Take a minute break and blend again.
Using a sieve, filter the juice. Hard parts of the seeds will be left back.
If you find that the seeds are quite big and not broken fully, again blend for a while and strain. Discard the remaining.
Now add honey or powdered jaggery. Mix well. Sprinkle a little chat masala powder over the juice. This is entirely optional.
