Arabian Pulpy Grape Juice Recipe

A Exhibition was held in my place. Myself and mom  went for a visit there. There we saw a stall which sold a yummy grape juice. That was the first time i tasted it and i fell in love with it instantly. It is made of grapes and there were the pulp of grapes which was left cold. It was so good. We asked them for the recipe, and this is what they replied. " Madam, it is so easy to make, you just need a machine, just put all the grapes in and the machine will do the rest" I was so curious and asked them " where is that machine, do you sell it and how much does it cost". They replied in a very cool manner " It is just 5 lakh". Me and my mom was staring at each other.

Back home, i told mom that there must be a cheap way of doing this and i will find it for sure. The same day i did a lot of search and found this recipe in youtube. The trick in getting this pulpy grape juice is to cook seedless whole black grapes in pressure cooker. Immediately i asked hubby to get me whole seedless grapes. But for my luck they were out of season. But i stored the recipe in my mind and was thinking to try it when i see those grapes in the market.

Few weeks back i was surprised to see those grapes in market and immediately picked a bunch of them. I tried the recipe and was surprised and excited seeing the result. Because it turned out exactly like them. 

Pressure cooking the grapes made the skins to cook down and become transparent. It almost felt like the skin from the grapes just disappeared. You will be enjoying each mouthful of pulpy grapes for sure..I hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 30 to 40 mins


Seedless Black Grapes - 500 grams
Sugar - 1 cup
Lemon Juice - 1 to 2 tblspn or to taste
Rose Essence - few drops
Water as needed


Wash grapes really well.

Take it in a bowl which fits in a cooker, add sugar and mix well. 

Take a large pressure cooker, fill the bottom with some water, place the bowl of grapes in and cover the cooker. Pressure cook this for 5 to 6 whistle. Simmer the flame and cook for 10 mins. Turn off the heat and let the steam go all by itself.

Now open the cooker, remove the bowl out carefully. Allow the mix to cool down.

Now add in lemon juice, rose essence and some more water. Mix well.

Chill well.

Serve cold.


1)Try to use seedless grapes. I think you can use grapes with seeds as well. But you have to do one more step of mashing the cooked grapes and straining the seeds as well. So seedless grapes is the best option.

2)If you see the grapes is not cooked after the method i have mentioned, Put the bowl back inside the cooker and you can cook it longer.

3)This can be stored in the fridge for a week or even more than that.

4)Just add 2 to 3 drops of rose essence or it will over power the juice.

You need seedless black grapes

pick them off the stalks

Take them in a colander and rinse them really well

Now take your other stuffs..You need sugar, lemon and rose essence

first take the grapes in steel bowl which can fit into a pressure cooker

add some sugar to it

mix that well

now take a large pressure cooker

fill the bottom with little water

place the bowl of grapes into the cooker

once it is inside

cover the cooker and cook
Pressure as mentioned in the recipe

Once the pressure is released open the cooker

slowly remove the bowl out and let it chill

just before serving, squeeze in lemon juices

and few drops of rose essence

you can dilute it with some water as well

Serve cold


  1. So aarthi wat abt. the grapes skin... My mom used to remove the skin. U dint mentioned it... So do the juice taste yumm with that skin too

  2. My method is given below:-


    Black Grapes - 1/2 kg
    Sugar - 1 cup ( adjust depending on taste)
    Water - 3 cups


    Wash grapes and boil with 2 cups of water until grapes start floating on top.
    Remove off heat and let it cool.
    Separate the skin of grapes from the pulp and seeds. The skin will float on top, the pulp in middle and the seeds will be at the bottom of the vessel. You might however have to lightly squeeze the pulp to separate the pulp which are still holding onto their skin.
    Blend the separated grape-skin along with sugar.
    Pass this through a fine colander adding a cup of water.
    Add this extracted juice to the grape pulp.
    Serve chilled.

  3. Hi Aarthi,
    In fact I have tasted this many times and wondering how could they removed skin. What I had is grapes without skin. Probably after pressure cook if we remove skin would taste better. It is my hubby's favourite too. Let me try without fail. Thanks for the recipe.


  4. thank you for the recipe. it saved us all 5 lakhs hahhahaha :)

  5. Hi Aarthi,

    I tried this recipe yesterday.
    It came out well.
    Hope the taste of lemon may depend on person.
    I liked it more with out lemon.
    Also, a suggestion for others, plz use paneer grapes and not the hybrid one.
    I did not use the paneer grapes and it took longer to cook the hybrid one.

    Happy Cooking!

  6. @Anonymouspressure cooking the grapes makes the skin trasparent.u dont need to remove the skins..

  7. @FilwaknBy pressure cookinh the skins will be cooked. so dont need to remove it.

  8. Just tried this recipe, and it came out fantastic. Love the idea of pressure cooking cos the skin literally vanished and it was all pulpy and yummy.
