Aam Panna

Aam panna is a popular Indian drink which is prepared from green (raw) mangoes during Summer. Green mango has heat-resistant properties which helps to beat the heat during Summer especially in India. Taste of aam panna is the blend of different flavours including sweetness, tangy-ness and salty with the flavour of spices.


This is the first time I prepared aam panna at home and I thought why didn't I prepare this for all these days. When I served it to my husband when he came back from office he was really satisfied and drank till the last drop and then he asked what is the drink name? I said it is aam panna. He immediately asked 'Why isn't it green color?' Yes it is not his mistake because normally what we get in market (bottled aam panna) is green in colour. So I said aam panna is prepared from the pulp so it is the pulp colour (which is not green :))...Few people add mint leaves to aam panna which gives the green colour, I avoided as I wanted to enjoy the flavour of raw mango and didn't want to blend with any other taste. But market bought bottles normally use synthetic food colours to symbolize green mango. Even you can try this 'Aam Panna' during this Summer. So what are you waiting for! Nowadays market is flooding with mangoes, grab them and check out the recipe here and prepare the drink! And yes don't forget to share the feedback to me..
