Hello everyone, It’s been a long time since I have posted any new recipes... Hope you guys are fine and safe... How are the Christmas preparations coming along? I hope at least some of you have tried some wine this year. If you are on the lookout for recipes for baking Christmas Cakes & Cookies you can search my older posts.... Since Christmas is around the corner I thought of posting a couple of wine recipes I tried recently.... Hope you guys can make it just before Christmas or New Year celebrations....

Pomegranate Wine / Mathala Naranga Wine / മാതള നാരങ്ങാ വൈൻ 


Pomegranate -1 kg / (6 - 8 numbers)

Sugar – 1 kg

Water – 3 ½ litres

Lemon juice and zest from one lemon

Orange juice and zest from one orange

Cloves -4 nos

Cinnamon – 1 x 2” piece

Yeast – ¾ tsp


  • Cut pomegranates into half and remove all of the fruity seeds into a bowl. Be sure not to include any of the pomegranate's pith or skin, as this can cause the wine to taste bitter. Crush the pomegranate seeds slightly in the mixy or with a handheld blender or with a potato masher.
  • With a citrus peeler or vegetable peeler thinly peel the orange zest and lemon zest without the white part. Extract the juice from the orange and lemon and keep aside.
  • Boil sugar and water in a big vessel. When the mixture begins to boil switch off the flame. Add all the ingredients except yeast to the boiled water.  
  • Mix thoroughly and allow the pomegranate mixture to stand for an hour or so, until it is lukewarm.
  • When the mixture becomes lukewarm, add yeast and mix well.
  • Transfer the mixture to a sterilized glass bottle / bharani, cover it and leave for 20 days stirring daily.
  • After 20 days, strain the mixture through a cheese/ muslin cloth in to a clean dry bottle.
  • Keep this again for 7 days untouched.
  • After 7 days strain the wine again, pour it in to clean dry bottles and use.
