The introduction of this juice in restaurants and wedding parties made a lot of buzz in Kerala many years ago. People wondered how to remove the seeds and keep the pulp in the juice.
It’s not difficult at all, though it’s a ‘little’ time consuming. But the end result is all worth the effort and the colour of the juice…amazing!
Indian Grape Juice
1 kilo black grapes
1 cup sugar
3 cups water
Wash the grapes and separate each grape from the bunch.
Place all the grapes in a large pan and heat on medium fire for 3-4 minutes. Stir once in a while.
Take off the fire when the skins start to break open. Don’t overcook.
Let it cool a bit to handle with your hands.
Now comes the time consuming part….
Pick each grape and separate the skin, seeds and pulp.
Put the skins in the same pan it was cooked and put the pulp in another bowl.
Add the sugar and water to the skin and boil for 5 minutes.
Let it cool and strain to pulp bowl.
