Cooking Method :

Take a clean, dry jar. Better use a glass jar, so that you can see the changes or fermentation of the wine.

Place some bilimbi evenly at the bottom of the jar. On top of it put a layer of jaggery. Now add another layer of the fruit and again a layer of jaggery. Continue the process till the jar is filled with jaggery and bilimbi fruits.

Now you can add two to three spoons of cinnamon and star anise powder. On top of it add 1 tsp of cardamom powder too. Optionally for more taste you can add sugar, ginger / dried ginger to this mix.

You can close the jar now. Tightly wrap the lid using a clean cotton cloth.

Keep the jar in a dry place for 20 days. After 20 days open the jar and strain it to another container. You can preserve this wine for a long time.

Hi Sony, Think its fine to use palm jaggery and ginger juice, if you cannot get the actual ingredients. Hope the wine comes out well.

Tried but some parts turned mouldy after a few days. Is this normal? If not, how to prevent moulds from growing?

Do you put the actual jar lid on the jar first? And then you tie a cloth around that? Or do you only tie the cloth around it and not put the actual lid on the jar? What is the purpose of the cloth?

Close the glass jar with the lid and then tie cloth around the jar. Watch the video to see the demonstration by Soumini Raman. The purpose is to keep it airtight.

First of all, let me thank Mdm Soumini Raman for the recipe.I myself tried it out and I am very glad to inform that I was pretty successful in my very first attempt.

Tempting Looks & "Divine" Taste. It is, possibly, the simplest way of making Bilimbi Wine, but, a certain one.

Tip : Also, I would like to add that Do Not throw away the left-overs (Bilimbi pieces & other ingredients), after straining the ready Wine. This can be enjoyed with Roti, Bread etc and maybe with Rice. If necessary, one may add sugar or honey, as per his / her liking. Thanks, again.
