Bael Juice | Wood Apple Juice | Bael Panna Recipe



Step By Step photos for making Bael Panna.

Bael fruit also commonly known as Wood Apple. Other names include Elephant apple, Bengal quince and Golden Apple. Though this fruit is native to India, not everyone is aware of it or there's not much fans following this unlike mangoes and other seasonal fruits. 


This bulky fruit has an hard outer shell and an orange pulp inside with numerous seeds. It has a tangy flavour and peach aroma. It can be consumed in different ways; as a fruit by scooping out the pulp and eating (which I did'nt enjoy as I felt the seeds were more than the pulp), in the form of juice, or by making candy or spread. I liked the juice version the most as I have'nt tried the others. So, if you know other ways of consuming this fruit, please do share with me or you can comment down below.

Considering its numerous health benefits, which you can read it here and here, this fruit is best consumed during summers and rainy season. As in summer, it gives relief from scorching heat and cools your body and during monsoon, it helps fight viral and bacterial infection by boosting the immune system.

How to make Bael Juice with step by step photos:

1. Break the shell along the circumference of the fruit like how you break a coconut.


2. Scoop out the pulp with spoon along with the seeds into a vessel.


3. Soak it in water for minimum 10 minutes to max 2 hours (if the pulp needs to be softer). Mash it with hand till the pulp is separated from the fibre and seeds.



4. Strain it. Keep adding more water, mashing and straining till you feel the maximum pulp is extracted.


5. Add required quantity of water, sugar and spices to the sieved juice. Mix well. Serve it chill.


Notes:

1. Never grind the seeds, the juice will turn out bitter.
2. Sugar can be replaced with jaggery, however, the juice tastes better with sugar.
3. For diabetic patient,  replace the sugar with pepper powder.
