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.

  1. I am amazed that mausambis r available in summer in India!In Pakistan, we get it in winters.really good to beat the heat.

    Humaira, Mausambi season is in winters, but they were somehow available in hot summer to my delight at the market.

  2. 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 πŸ™

    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.

  3. 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.
