Aam Panna/Raw Mango Drink

Aam Panna is a very cooling and refreshing drink which is popular in India in the summer months to beat the heat. Aam panna is made using Raw mangoes, fresh mint, jaggery/sugar, salt and roasted cumin powder. My mom used to make this drink for us, but she was just using raw mango and sugar to make this drink. I always loved that drink my mom made. Here I am blogging a little bit different recipe than my mom used to make and I also replaced sugar with jaggery.

Aam Panna stays good in the refrigerator for days. So just spending 15 -20 minutes in the kitchen and then you have a delicious aam panna which you can relish over time. This recipe makes a little thick consistency paste. Just take 2 or 3 tbsp of this mixture, and fill the rest of the glass with cold water and serve.

Some peel the green mango and chop before boiling. Here I showed you to cook whole mango in a pressure cooker. The fresh mint gives the required zing to this drink.

Variation: You can also roast the mangoes instead of boiling them. The subtle smoky flavor makes you want for more. Roast the raw mangoes like you roast brinjal for Baingan Bharta. Make sure to prick the mangoes before roasting them.

So here is my recipe to make this refreshing drink. Please give it a try and share your comments on whether you liked it or not.

  1. Rinse 1 raw mango in the water a couple of times. Place the mangoes in a pressure cooker. Add 1 cup of water. You can also steam the mangoes. You can also remove the peel and then pressure cook.

2. Pressure cook for 3 – 4 whistles or till soft.

3. When the pressure settles down, peel the skin off the mango and cut it into pieces. If the mango is too soft, just collect the pulp and discard the skin. Either way mango should be soft and cooked.

4. Place cooked mango, 3-4 tbsp jaggery, 10 mint leaves, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1 tsp cumin/jeera powder and pinch of black salt/table salt in a blender and blend it to a smooth paste. You can replace jaggery with sugar, if you prefer.
