It contains many minerals and vitamins like Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron, Carotene and Vitamin B Complex.

  • Green chillies are completely optional. If you prefer you can replace green chillies with pepper powder also.
  • I prepared 4 glasses of juice out of this syrup.
  • You can add more water if you feel the juice is bitter. Healthy things always tastes bitter.
