FALSA (grewia) & Aaroo (Peach) Sharbat/Juice

so this Ramzaan I have been very active with my favorite activity, cooking, and I tried all sorts of new dishes like salads, various kinds of smosas but one another thing that I did differently this Ramzan was to make juices at home. Previously we used to buy cold drinks, Squaish by Shezaan or maximum we made Lemondae but this Ramzan I tried two homemade juices made from fresh fruits and everyone in my home is a fan of them now. So I thought why shouldn’t I share my recipes with you guys.

So mine and everyone’s most favorite has been Falsay ka sharbat (Grewia Juice). Here is my recipe for it that I learnt from Food Fusion

8-take a blender

9-put the entire mixture (falsa mixed in sugar syrup) in blender

10- blend it until you are sure it has turned into a thick smooth paste
