Passion Fruit Juice

Passion Fruit is a Savoury tasted fruit. I came to know about this fruit very recently. I saw this plant hanging full of  fruits on its creepers in Dr. Khadar 's house and clinic in Mysore. Here I must mention Dr. Khadar who is a homeopathy Doctor, prepares medicine, does the organic farming and grows healthy grains like, millet, little millet. fox tail millet, finger millet and you can get almost all organic farmed vegetables and fruits.

Dr. Khadar advices people not to take these days fast food which is completely harmful to your body. and to practice eating the Complete Healthy Grains  that is " All kind of Millets " in your daily diet. He is 100% correct according to me. You all too may agree with my opinion right? ...Please practice and make use of Millets and live Strong and Healthy.
Though I saw Passion Fruit in Dr. Khadar's Clinic I did not get a chance to pluck or taste the fruit. My close friend Usha Suresh Cukkemane who took us to clinic said, that she has tasted the fruit and it is good for preparing juice.Understood the concept and kept it in mind. This time when we visited Mr. Sathish Hande who lives In Mysore (one of our close family friend),and is also an engineer by profession, now an ardent, hard working agriculturist. He grows lots of vegetables and fruits in Organic style and is very much dedicated. When we were returning from his house he packed some fruits for us along with Papaya and tomatoes grown in his farm. This way we got these Passion Fruits and I have given some fruits to my brother and my in laws house too, since they too new about this passion fruit. 

Now lets see some benefits of eating or having this fruit.
Passion fruit is rich source of antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and  good source of dietary fiber. Passion Fruit contain Vitamin C, and  Vitamin A. Vitamin A help to maintain healthy mucus, membranes and skin.It contains a high amount of antioxidants, these nutrients protect eyes from free radical damage. Passion Fruit is very beneficial to protect eyes from vision loss and improve eye sight. The fiber content is very effective to improve digestion. Passion fruit is highly effective to protect from high blood pressure.

Here is a simple way of preparing " Passion Fruit Juice ", which is very easy and adding jaggery (iron content) helps the juice to be sweet and perfect.
