About Roselle Juice Recipe

Sharing a unique drink which many may not be aware of. In Nagaland, both leaves and fruit/flower of Roselle is widely used in cooking as well as brewing tea from Roselle flower. Similarly, some North Eastern States too used them in their cooking. A very refreshing, soothing and super healthy drink made of Roselle flower/calyx. Roselle is said to be rich in powerful antioxidants(flavonoids and anthocyanins) and vitamins A, B & C. The calyx is used for treating urinary tract infection, constipation, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Roselle drink can be had hot and chilled with lots of ice cubes. It can be made with fresh as well as dried ones. Back home we harvest it and sun-dry both the leaves and fruits/flower for future use, this way it can be stored for a longer duration.

Roselle Juice

Ingredients to make Roselle Juice

  • Roselle flower (calyx) - 15-20 nos
  • water - 1½ litre 
  • sugar - ¼ cup
  • salt a pinch
  • Ice cubes for serving

How to make Roselle Juice

  1. Peel the seed out of the calyx and discard the seed. (or if you are using dried ones, just wash in water and add directly) I have used dried ones.
  2. In a pan add the roselle and water. 
  3. Bring to boil over medium high heat for 10-15 minutes. 
  4. Add sugar and a pinch of salt and let the sugar dissolve completely. 
  5. Take off the heat and let it cool down at room temperature. 
  6. Strain it and chill it in the fridge. 
  7. Pour in individual serving glass, add ice cubes and serve chilled.

My Tip:

You can increase the sugar to ½ cup if you want more sweetness since Roselle naturally is sour in taste.
