Mango Frooti - Home made

Share with friends and family

Mango frooti..fresh and juicy!!! 

How many can relate to this yummylicious advertisement on the Television every summer??
  The visuals were so luscious that all of us would want to grab one right away .The small squarish tetra pack was every child's dream . The fun part for me was piercing that small hole through the straw and take a sip . Me and my friend would eagerly wait for outings during summer vacation so that we get our share of frooti from our parents . Pure nostalgia and fun free days. 
Now even though I have outgrown that stage , the taste of frooti still lingers in my mouth and I do get the craving occasionally. 
Such a craving suddenly popped up during lockdown and as going out is not that advisable I made this frooti style mango juice at home itself and guess what ??with each sip I could relive my childhood  .This post is dedicated to my childhood summer holidays and the fun I had with my partner in crime friend D .D was crazy for Frooti and Peppy :-) 

I have tried to make this drink as a concentrate which can be stored for about 2 months  or more in fridge.  You can take the required amount of concentrate, pour in some chilled water and ice cubes and enjoy ! Remember to put back the concentrate in the fridge quickly .

1 raw mango - I used thothapuri variety
2 ripe mangoes - used alphonso variety 
2 cups sugar 
1tsp of salt 
500 ml water 

  • Wash and peel the skin of the mangoes. 
  • Chop them roughly including the pulp on the seed .scrape out all the pulp on the seed and discard the seed.
  • In a pressure cooker add these chopped mangoes, 1tsp salt , 100 ml water and pressure cook on medium for 2 whistles. 
  • Alternatively,you can cook the mangoes in a normal vessel until the mangoes are well cooked and soft .
  • Allow this to cool and then puree it in a blender. 
  • Strain this puree through a sieve and set aside. 
  • Prepare sugar syrup with the 2 cups sugar and 300 ml water and boil till the sugar syrup reaches one string consistency. 
  • This 1 string consistency is important because we are making the concentrate and it needs to have a long shelf life .
  • When the consistency is reached, add in the mango puree to this sugar syrup ,mix and bring it to a rolling boil for 5 mins. 
  • Turn off the stove and let it cool completely. 
  • Now store in a dry glass bottle and refrigerate. 
  • To make frooti, take about 1/3rd glass of concentrate and add chilled water to it ,stir and enjoy your home made frooti .

I have used alphonso mangoes, but you can use any sweet variety of mango that is available.
The shelf life of the concentrate is between 2 to 4 months depending on the consumption. 

If you face frequent power cuts in your city , the shelf life won't be long .In that case try to consume it quickly.
