How to Make A Grewia asiatica juice

Grewia asiatica juice:


  • 1 cup Grewia asiatica (also known as Phalsa) berries
  • 4-5 cups water
  • Sugar or honey to taste
  • A pinch of black salt (optional)
  • Ice cubes (optional)


  1. Wash the berries: Rinse the Grewia asiatica berries thoroughly under cold water to remove any dirt or debris.
  2. Boil the berries: In a pot, add the washed berries and water. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Let the berries simmer for about 10-15 minutes until they become soft and start to release their color and flavor into the water.
  3. Mash the berries: Using a potato masher or a fork, gently mash the softened berries in the pot. This will help release more of their juices and flavors into the water.
  4. Strain the mixture: Place a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth over a bowl or jug. Carefully pour the berry mixture through the strainer, allowing the juice to collect in the bowl while separating the pulp and seeds.
  5. Sweeten the juice: Add sugar or honey to the strained juice according to your taste preferences. Stir well until the sweetener is fully dissolved.
  6. Add flavor (optional): If you like, you can add a pinch of black salt to enhance the flavor of the juice. Black salt complements the tartness of Grewia asiatica well.
  7. Chill and serve: Refrigerate the juice for a few hours until it’s thoroughly chilled. You can also add ice cubes to the juice when serving to make it even more refreshing.
  8. Serve: Pour the chilled Grewia asiatica juice into glasses and serve. You can garnish it with a few fresh Grewia asiatica berries or a slice of lemon for an extra touch.

Remember that Grewia asiatica berries are naturally tart, so the amount of sweetener you add will depend on your personal taste preferences. Adjust the sugar or honey accordingly to achieve the desired level of sweetness. Enjoy your homemade Grewia asiatica juice!
