Bael / Bel Juice
￼Bael Juice - Healthy, Yummy and perfect drink for Summer! 🙂
In a big bowl, break these bael fruits with the help of a rock or some heavy thing. Make sure you use a steel or aluminium container, as we don't want to break our glassware. The fruit will easily break into pieces and you will see yellow meshy pulp inside.
Fill the same bowl with water and let the fruit get dip inside it for few minutes. Now with the help of your hands squeesh the fruit into the water. We just want the pulp and throw away the hard part of the fruit.
Once done, strain the juice using a strainer. Add more water if required.
Add sugar if required. If you are making it for a diebetic patient, avoid sugar.
Squeeze half a lemon, garnish with few mint leaves and serve chill.
