Aam Phal Ka Panna/ A Spiced Up Ripe Mango Drink

Project: Summer 30

Day #18: 

Drink – Aam Phal Ka Panna/ A Spiced Up Mango Drink

I bought some mangoes from the market the other day but they were very sour when I tasted. So with those mangoes, I tried a new version of aam panna. It had a wonderful flavor and took in every spice I added quite magnanimously; I had an impression that mangoes are very rich in flavor and dominate the dish. I have not heard or read or tasted of such an aam panna, it is purely my version with fruit mangoes and a mix of spices. Please let me know if anyone who reads this has come across aam phal ka panna.

சிறப்பொடு பூசனை செல்லாது வானம்
வறக்குமேல் வானோர்க்கும் ஈண்டு.


If the sky fails to rain, the festivals and daily worship of the celestial beings therein shall cease too.
