This is the season of rose apples aka chambanga. We have a lot of them in our yard. Last month, seeing a lot of them getting fallen down and wasted, I thought of trying something with it. The first idea that came into my mind was making wine using these rose apples and here is the recipe of the one I made.


  1. Clean the chambangas well, remove the seeds and slice it into small pieces.
  2. Add sugar, water, yeast and keep it in a wine bottle for 21 days.
  3. After 21 days, open it and filter out the clear top liquids. Discard the sediments.
  4. Keep the liquid in the same bottle for another 21 days more.
  5. On day 42 you will get strong chambanga / rose apple wine.
  6. Serve it with cakes….


  • Adding 4 or 5 cloves (grambu) can make it more kicking.

      Albert De Souza its not technically wine, and please don’t get all judgmental on the lady. The whole reason why alcohol is haram is not because of the alcohol content in the wine. the reasons are more practical than you think sir.
      Regina M Zamzam its such a delight to se someone is out there giving out such cool recipes and in an easily accessible manner too. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you so much for that! And I just made this today out of utter impulse and left it to set, counting down my days from today. My first idea was a preservative like the marmalade or jelly. But then my uncle told me about this and thought with Easter coming up it’d be a great addition to dinner ๐Ÿ™‚
