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

Ingredients

  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

Procedure:

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!

Tip: 

  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 🙂
