How to make Phalse ka Sharbat - Phalsa Sharbat
In olden times phalse sharbat was made by wrapping the fruit in a cloth and squeezing it with the hands. But this method was used in earlier times. Now mixers and juicers have made the work easy.
Wash the phalse and add put it inside the mixing jar.Add half cup of water and turn on the mixer. This way the pulp leaves the seeds at the bottom and gets mixed with the water. The seeds are left as it is.
Now add three cups of chilled water in this mixture, and turn on the mixer one again for half a minute. The pulp will get mixed into the water. Now take it out of the mixer, filter it and add 3 table spoon of sugar in it. You can also add 1 lemon into it.
