Adrak aur ganne ka gola

Posted on September 29, 2009. Filed under: Chaat, Drinks | Tags: , |

The streets of Mumbai are dotted with vendors selling “ganne ka ras” (sugarcane juice) extracted by pressing the sweet ” ganna” or sugarcane.
We are so familiar with the sight of fresh sugarcane juice that it is not a novelty. But when the same is frozen with a dash of ginger juice and lemon, it transforms itself into an exciting and delightful sorbet.

Cooking Time : Nil.
Preparation Time : 10 mins.

Serves 4.

Ingredients
6 cups sugarcan juice
1 tablespoon ginger juice
6 to 8 tablespoons sugar
juice of 1/2 lemon
Method
1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well till the sugar dissolves.
2. Freeze in a freezer proof container till it is set (approximately 4 to 6 hours).
3. Transfer to a blender and liquidise till it is slushy.
4. Serve scoops of the gola in 4 glasses and serve immediately.
Tips
Grate the ginger to extract ginger juice.
Sugarcane juice must be handled and frozen as quickly as possible as the heat and air tend to discolour it and it also turns rancid quickly.
