Aam Panna

Aam panna is a most loved summer – cooler in north India. In south, raw mango is considered to render heating effect to body while in contrary it is actually counted on for cooling the body. It is also a super refreshing and tangy drink that aids digestion. Tangy and flavourful variety of mangoes is suitable for this recipe.

Serves: 1 1/2 litre

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

1.     Raw Mango – 2
2.     Cumin powder – 1 tsp
3.     Black salt – 1 tsp
4.     Normal salt – ½ tsp
5.     Sugar – 3 tbsp
6.     Dry ginger powder – ½ tsp
7.     Mint – few sprigs

Step 1: Wash and pressure cook the mangoes.
Step 2: When they cool down to normal extract the pulp out of them by squeezing. Discard the seed and skin after rinsing them in a bowl of 1 litre water. Keep the water for later use.
Step 3: Now in a mixer jar, add mango pulp, mint springs and get a smooth paste.

Step 4: Add this to the secured water and mix well. Now add sugar, salt, black salt, dry ginger powder, cumin powder and stir well. Adjust taste and filter it if required. If the mango has lot of fibre filtering is better otherwise slightly grainy texture is just perfect.

Step 5: Refrigerate until serving. Adding ice cubes may dilute the taste, so avoid it.
