Mosambi juice

It was unbearably hot and sultry, but by gods grace, the weather has now turned cool with the arrival of monsoons in Hyderabad city. So, on the weekend, I made a quick trip to the Mozamjahi market to buy some Mosambi, also called as sweet lime. Ah, I had missed this fruit very dearly.

A glass of fresh home made Mosambi juice to refresh and quench the thirst

To make Mosambi juice: Simply peel the fruit and discard all the seeds. Transfer the pulp into a blender and add some sugar to taste. Blend until frothy for a few minutes. Strain into a jug and serve it chilled.

  9. Mona,

    I couldnt resist commenting when I saw the photo of mosambi shops, Mozhamjahi market. I have lived for 20 years in Abids very close to Mozhamjahi market. Brought back my wonderful childhood memories. I think this is one of the places in Hyderabad that has not changed much. Loved to see this photo. Thanks for uploading it.

  10. Assalamu-alaikum Mona, Glad you’re enjoying your stay there in Hyderabad. Did you move there permanently?
    P.S: The market picture seems to have disappeared 🙁

    WaAlaiKumAsSalaam Nabeela, I havent moved to Hyderabad permanently, just here to visit my parents for a few months inshallah. The first picture seems to be working fine, try opening the site in a different browser, hope that helps.
