Home made Sugarcane Juice | Karumbu Saru | Karumbu Juice

Sugarcane Juice/Karumbu Saru , a freshly squeezed juice from the sugarcane. Sugarcane is one of the must ingredient we used to offer on Pongal festival. During pongal, the fresh sugarcane is available throughout Tamilnadu, India and i love to have them as it is and also throughout the year, the sugarcane juice is easily available from road side vendors in Tamilnadu.  Also seen elder people(who can't bite the sugarcane) at my home town bring the sugar cane to the near by sugar cane juice vendor to squeeze the juice at nominal rate. So never thought of making juice from it at home.
Now coming to making juice at home, last year, i had seen recipes from fellow bloggers making sugar cane juice at their home using mixie, since then i wanna give this method a  try and for this pongal luckily we're in India, so just for the sake of making juice, i reserved few sugarcanes otherwise i would have finished them earlier. Making juice at home was way easier than i had expected, if you have good heavy duty indian mixie, then you can make them in secs. Now let's check how i squeezed the juice from sugarcane.

Notes:
