Finally the season of mangoes is here… yay… I eagerly wait for this time of the year. The other day when I went grocery shopping, I spotted (kachi keri) raw mangoes in a corner. Can’t express how excited and happy I was. Grabbed quiet a few 🙂
I made aam panna the very next day. I love panna. It is so refreshing and yummy. Plus it is good for digestion too. A chilled glass of aam panna on a hot summer afternoon or evening, well what else can we ask for? 🙂
Aam panna is a quick recipe and an easy one too. I add mint to aam panna. It is optional, but in my opinion fresh mint enhances the flavor of aam panna and takes it to another level altogether. Also the quantity of sugar and other spices cant be adjusted according to personal taste and depending on the sourness of the mangoes. So without further ado, lets prepare aam panna today 🙂
- Raw mangoes – 8
- Fresh mint leaves – about 10
- Water – 4 cups
- Sugar – about 10 tablespoon or as per taste
- Black salt – about 1 teaspoon or as per taste
- Black pepper powder – half teaspoon or as per taste
- Cumin powder (jeera powder) – 1 teaspoon or as per taste
- Salt – as per taste
I am using about 8 raw mangoes. It will make around 4 glasses of aam panna. You can refrigerate it for 4-5 days.
Wash them and then boil them till they turn soft.
Once they turn soft, remove them from the water and set aside till they cool down.
Separate the pulp from the skin and the seed.
Blend the mango pulp, mint leaves along with half cup of water until smooth.
Transfer into a deep bowl.
Mix water, sugar and spices. You might have to adjust the sugar and spices to suit personal taste. It will also depend on the sourness of the mangoes.
Aam panna is ready. Refrigerate it for a couple of hours or serve immediately with ice cubes.
