Thick mango pulp – 1 cup

Water – 1 cup for sugar syrup
Cold Water – as required to mix with concentrate
Lemon juice – from 2 lemons
Squeeze lemon and extract the juice, discard the seeds.Collect the juice in a bowl.Keep aside. In a heavy bottomed vessel add sugar.
Then add water and stir continuously till sugar dissolves and it will start bubbling , allow it to boil till a single string consistency is reached(very thin string is enough). Switch off and cool down completely.
Blend mangoes to get a thick pulp(dont add water). Once the sugar syrup is completely cooled add the mango pulp to it, then add lemon juice to it.
While serving add cold water and ice cubes as required to the mango lemon concentrate and serve chilled.
