Ganga Jamuna - Orange Sweet Lime Juice


Share with friends and family

 Ganga Jamuna - does this name sound very interesting and attractive?? This was my reaction too when I first saw this name on the menu card of a fresh fruit Juice shop .

As intrigued as I was with the name ,I was very skeptical to try and was even hesitant to ask the owner what it comprised off . But luckily for me,  my friend very boldly ordered for this drink while I settled for my favorite Pineapple juice. 

I was very keen to see what ingredients went into the making of Ganga Jamuna . I observed the shopkeeper  very closely and to my surprise he picked up oranges and sweet lime (mosambi) to prepare. Since it was a mix of 2 fruits going into one juice, it has been called Ganga Jamuna .

You may use the traditional citrus juice presser to extract the juice or use modern day  electric juicers which remove the pulp and extract pure juice. 

Ensure that the seeds from the oranges and sweet lime are removed before pressing the juice in a blender as the juice may turn bitter if seeds get crushed. 




Preparation Time - 5 mins
Cooking Time - nil 
Complexity- simple
Serves - 2 to 3 glasses of juice
 

Ingredients 

2 oranges
2 sweet lime (mosambi)
Sugar as per taste
Pinch of salt 
2 glasses of chilled water 

Method

  • Peel the oranges and sweet lime and remove the seeds from the pulp from individual slices . This step can be skipped if using traditional citrus juice presser.
  • Add the  slices to the juicer,  sugar and blend it for 2 mins. 
  • Strain the extracted juice through a strainer ,add salt mix it well . Adjust sugar at this stage if you want it a little more sweet . Sugar can be skipped if the oranges and sweet lime are sweet naturally. 
  • Pour it into tall juice glasses, top it with ice cubes if you want and serve chilled.

  8. We love fresh juice and make different combinations every morning. I had to google sweet limes (mosambi). I think we call them tangerines here. I will try your combination next week. I love the name Gunga jamuna.

    1. Thanks dear Mina . If I am right tangerines are a variety of oranges(santhra) while mosambi is referred to as sweet lime and is predominantly available in the south Asian regions .not sure if it is available in Europe but I did have a tough time to find mosambi in the US.
