Wood Apple Punch / Bel ka Sharbat

Wood apple also known as "Elephant apple" and "Bel" in hindi is an excellent summer cooler. The juice is very soothing and a great medicine for heatstroke. It is easily available during summers and is easy to make. I never tried to make it as I thought its messy and its hard covering is difficult to break, but to my surprise a ripe woodapple breaks on one hit. So, I made this first time and sure will make it often due to its qualities. So , here I am sharing the recipe with pictures.


Ingredients:

Woodapple - 1 medium
Sugar - As per taste
Water - 3-4 glasses
Salt - 1/2 tbs ( Optional)
Roasted Cumin powder - 1/2 tbs ( optional)



Method:

Take a woodapple and hit with a hammer.It will easily break. See the pictures.




Take out all the content from it and then scrap the sides also.

Now in a big bowl, take the woodapple  and add 4 glasses of cold water and mash the content
.


Keep mashing and mixing till it dissolves in water. Add water if its thick juice.

Now add powdered sugar and mix. Add some ice. Strain the juice.



Some salt and roasted cumin powder.

Woodapple punch is ready to serve.
 
 

Hope you liked it..
