Fresh Mint Leaves – 10
Chilled Water – as required
Lemon Juice – as required(optional)
Ice cubes – few
Salt – to taste
Dry roast cumin seeds for few mins until nice aroma rises, then powder it, I use my hand mortar and pestle. In a mixer add sugar,salt,mint leaves,half of jeera and pepper and grind it to a fine powder.
Pressure cook raw mango with enough water (just immersing level will do) until mushy, giving it 3-4 whistles. Peel off skin, take out the pulp alone and discard the seed, add the pulp along with the sugar mint mixture and blend it to a smooth puree with no water.Now your raw mango preserve is ready.
For 2 cups(500ml) of water add about 4 tbsp of the preserve, add 1 tsp lemon juice give a quick mix.Garnish with mint leaves and add some icecubes, sprinkle leftover jeera and powder and serve chilled.
