Aam Ka Panna

Those super sunny days and hot summer winds,

My laced, frilly frock dancing on the swings;

The chilled water from the wells, early morning temple bells;

Folding old newspapers into little fans,

Holding hands in the fields we ran;

Granny’s sweet and sour mango pickle,

Made our little tummies tickle;

But nothing else could be a better soother,

Than Mom’s special Aam Panna cooler !

Preparation Time – 15 minutes

Serves  – 4


  1. Raw Mango – 250 gms
  2. Water – 2 cups
  3. Roasted Cumin Powder – 2 tbsp
  4. Sugar – 2 tbsp
  5. Black Salt – 2 tbsp or as per taste


Step 1: Cut off the tip of the raw mangoes, wash and pressure cook them. 2-3 whistles are good enough for the mango to cook. Drain the water and let the mangoes cool.

Step 2: Peel the mango and separate the pulp from the seed. Grind it into a small paste with some water and then mix it with all the other ingredients.

Serve it chilled with some ice cubes!


  1. You can replace water by drinking soda to add fizz to your drink.
  2. You can also make a concentrated form and mix it with some water/soda whenever you wish to serve. It stays good for a week in the refrigerator.
  3. Try taking a bottle of Aam Panna instead of wine as a gift for the next party. It will surely win some hearts. 😀

This recipe is really close to my heart! Hope you guys enjoy this as well 🙂
